M4D Library

 

The repository collected over more than six years represents a joint effort of the M4D Net Facilitation Team and the M4D Net members to make available to the wider community the latest findings in the field of migration and development with a view to filling potential knowledge gaps and move the migration and development agenda forward through evidence-based research.

The e-Library is searchable by keyword, document type, thematic area, focus area and year of publication. Being a member of the M4D Net Community also allows you to upload documentation that you wish to share with others through the e-Library.

The system of migrant detention centres in Libya do not provide humane conditions to migrants, according to a new report from Doctors Without Borders (MSF). In these facilities, people are often malnourished and exposed to violence. Moreover, pregnant women in the centres have to give birth without any medical assistance. Each month medical teams provide around 100 medical consultations and make around a dozen referrals to secondary and tertiary healthcare facilities so that detainees in need can receive further medical assistance. In addition, MSF recently opened mobile clinics in Misrata (...

One of the major risks outlined in this report is that many Cambodians that move to Thailand hoping to find better jobs end up being trafficked for their labour. Access the full story here.

The UN has released a new study that finds a causal relation between long lasting droughts in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras and the increase in irregular migration from these countries to the United States. This research shows that younger and more vulnerable people are more prone to leave food-insecure areas – especially in the Dry Corridor, a drought-prone area that crosses these countries. Indeed, guaranteeing enough food supplies for themselves is one of the aims of most families.  This is why 72% of those families that receive money from migrants abroad applied “emergency” coping...

      The International Organisation of Migration has published a new report outlining the remarkable potential of migration for development. While migration was absent from the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), the Sustainable Development Goal’s (SDGs) political declaration breaks new ground by recognising the “positive contribution of migrants for inclusive growth” and the “multi-dimensional reality” of migration. Thus, this report highlights how migration can be inserted in several goals and targets of the SDGs, and considers how cities can contribute to the achievement of these goals....

  Ces notes politiques ont été rédigées dans le cadre du Quatrième Forum Mondial des Maires sur la mobilité humaine, les migrations et le développement. Ils soulignent l'importance des villes en tant que producteurs de politiques efficaces dans le domaine de l'inclusion des migrants. En effet, les autorités locales sont à l'avant-garde de l'accueil des réfugiés et des migrants. Alors que la migration aujourd'hui est nettement urbaine, les maires et les autorités locales, en tant que niveau de gouvernement le plus proche des personnes, ont le potentiel et la responsabilité de créer un...
