Ideas to Action:

Independent research for global prosperity


Migration can be a powerful tool for development. The right policies can unlock wins across the board—for destination countries, origin countries, and migrants and their families. But migration has been demonized as part of the backlash against globalization, and governments are struggling to respond pragmatically. CGD offers rigorous research and evidence to reframe contentious political debates and solutions so everyone wins.

This work is part of CGD’s program on Migration, Displacement, and Humanitarian Policy.
