Seminar "World Development Report (WDR) 2023: Migrants, Refugees, and Societies"
Populations across the globe are aging at an unprecedented pace, making many countries increasingly reliant on migration to realize their long-term growth potential, according to a new report from the World Bank.
The World Development Report 2023: Migrants, Refugees, and Societies, issued on April 25, 2023, identifies this trend as a unique opportunity to make migration work better for economies and people. Wealthy countries as well as a growing number of middle-income countries—traditionally among the main sources of migrants—face diminishing populations, intensifying the global competition for workers and talent. Meanwhile, most low-income countries are expected to see rapid population growth, putting them under pressure to create more jobs for young people.
At this hybrid seminar, Quy-Toan Do, Co-Director of WDR2023, will present the main finding of the report, and Lisette Robles, Research Fellow, JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute, Yosuke Kobayashi, Deputy Director General for Citizen Partnership Promotion and Senior Director, Office for Foreign Human Resources, Domestic Strategy and Partnership Department, JICA, and Tatsufumi Yamagata, Professor, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University, will share comments.
