image of Migration and Development

There is much greater awareness today that development affects migration, and that migration influences development. The challenge is to find innovative and effective ways to enhance the benefits of migration while mitigating its adverse development implications for emigration countries. This study assesses and analyses the migration and development situation of Angola and Zambia.



Migration and development: The case of Zambia

The migration and development situation in Zambia differs in many ways from that of Angola due to the two countries’ contrasting historical backgrounds. Whilst Angola has been seriously affected by war and instability, Zambia is an example of peace and stability in the region. Rather than producing refugees as many other of its neighbouring countries, Zambia became one of the major recipients of refugee populations. Zambia also experienced significant losses of skilled and highly skilled professionals because of the steady deterioration of socio-economic conditions in the country.
