Online Youth Consultation on Migration and Development: Week 2: Circulating Labor for Inclusive Development
Oct 14, 2012

Migration brings both: threats and benefits. Series of coordinated and focused efforts are a necessity to control migration related issues in both the origin and destination countries. The process is not only a shift of individual rather with it a complete set of expectations, fears and uncertainties; which in turn can threat the native and might develop insecurities in the entrant. Subject at hand revolves around the inclusive development i.e. ‘broad-based growth’ that allows people to contribute to and benefit from economic growth. It targets the expansion of economy through involvement of huge chunk of labor force, and migrants form a considerable section of the labor force.

Circulating labor through mutual cooperation is of crucial importance to kick start inclusive development or growth. It specifically aims at poverty reduction through engaging all stake holders of a community or society; and migrants stand as one of the most important agents to the socioeconomic uplift of the society in the current world. Law makers should be fully aware of the inflow and outflow of the labor force and in turn how their presence alters the entire socioeconomic landscape of a country. Policies must be carved out taking in account all the new dimensions a migrant adds to the society. Socioeconomic uplift is now very much dependant on labor who is crossing borders for better livelihood and opportunities.

Express yourself!

Do you feel that a well planned exchange of labor between two countries would be beneficial for both?

A well planned exchange of labour between two countries will be beneficial to both countries as it will foster peace,initiate cultural mix, bind their business ties and enable them to look at how to export and import food between each other(depending on the foods/agric produce that one is lacking in his own country).This will definitely spin off a great economic gain.However,outflow of migrants definitely affects the socioeconomic growth of the home country as it makes skilled laborers to leave their home countries in search of more developed countries that will be beneficial to them(financially,educationally and culturally).It is important to state here that migrants(especially the properly documented ones) can add value to the development of a country i they are treated well and given access to social amenities in that host country.However,if the migrants are deprived of this freedom they pose serious threats to the society and the country they migrated to .Yes, migrants play a vital role in advocating their country's image in their host country to promote better economic relations at national levels if and only if their host country treats them good.Migration does not entirely facilitate the employers in accessing a wide range of skill set present all around the globe because the migrants at a certain time may have skill restricted to a specific domain(they may have specialized skill and come into their new country/host country inorder to do a specific job).
