This brochure outlines the work of the migration and displacement programme at ODI over the past year.

Our approach

Migration is – and always has been – a fundamental part of human life.

Historically, such mobility has contributed to development, growth and more broadly to economic and social change for individuals and societies.

Yet managing global migration and displacement is not without its challenges, as recent events in Europe and beyond demonstrate.

Our research, policy engagement and public affairs examine how we can meet these global challenges. Our focus is on how to better manage human mobility for the benefits of all through realistic and sustainable actions.
