An ICTSD Blog Series
About the Series
A shift in cross-border migration patterns is underway and policymakers need to formulate policies that enhance potential benefits and anticipate potential drawbacks. Understanding the ways in which migration and trade interact is increasingly vital to managing global and regional interdependence. This series of short commentaries explores some of the key trends and policy issues at different levels of governance that lie at the intersection of migration and the globalised economy.

About the ICTSD Trade and Migration Initiative
The series falls within a broader ICTSD initiative designed to improve understanding of the relationship between trade and migration and lead to policy recommendations that reinforce the positive linkages between both issues. Through dialogues, policy papers, opinion pieces, and news reporting, the initiative examines how the trade and investment system can provide tools to improve the global governance of international migration in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
