Abstract

The former Secretary-General Kofi Annan initiated the first high-level UN Dialogue on Migration and Development, held in New York on September 14 and 15, 2006. This recognized that if constructively and creatively harnessed, migration can contribute to a better social, political, and economic transformation in both adopted and native countries. This is partly the result of the growing economic and human-resources potential of the diaspora communities that need to be tapped for maximum benefit with respect to the overall development of their countries of origin.
