The lecture addresses the most prevalent myths and misconceptions around migration including those related to migration-development nexus. It discusses misconceptions around who is a migrant, around migration trends as well as around how migration and development interact. The lecture challenges the dominant views which are reflected also in the European policies that development as such or development aid in particular will reduce migration.
This lecture was part of the 8th EMN Educational Seminar on Migration entitled "Migration in a Multilateral World". The Seminar is organised by the International Organization for Migration Slovakia as the coordinator of the Slovak EMN National Contact Point. This activity is funded by the European Union and co-funded by the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic.
