The presentation will go over PRSPs, migration and policies which may have an impact on migration. In particular, it will address what have been the key policies in developing countries in terms of emigration and immigration, and also internal migration. Identification of stylized facts, systemic obstacles to the implementation of those policies, trends, and potential good practices will also be addressed.
