ADMIGOV Deliverable 6.2

This report highlights the relationship between development interventions and migrant decision-making, both on the initial decision to migrate or return decision-making factors and decision-making in ‘transit’ countries or countries of first reception. As part of the work package on ‘development’, the overall package aims for a comparative assessment between Turkey, Lebanon, Mali, and Ethiopia, where two countries with a large reserve of displaced people (Turkey and Lebanon), and two countries of extreme poverty (Ethiopia and Mali) are studied. In Turkey and Lebanon, we are looking at exploring the displaced population. In Mali and Ethiopia, it’s a comparative assessment between locals and the displaced people as per the project's scope. The overall study aims to provide an evaluation of the relationship between development interventions and migration decision-making in a comparative context between four countries. This is done to critically inform policy and development practice on the relationship between migration decision-making and development, and guide the development of indicators on the governance of migration and development.
