DRN 2008 Vol. XXVI No. 5: The Philippine Diasporic Dividend: for the OFWs, their Families, and the Country

International migration as a development concern took center stage in this year`s observance of the 6th Development Policy Research Month (DPRM). The DPRM provided the perfect opportunity for stakeholders to discuss the implications of international migration not only in the context of economic gains but more importantly, on the social level. How these impacts are to be assessed and related to the crafting of programs and policies that would help maximize our gains from the diaspora are also critical points of discussion. This issue takes a look at the highlights of the conference on "Managing the Development Impact of International Migration" held recently which capped the DPRM celebration.
