Migrations and Development 

Human mobility has reached a high and unprecedented level: the global number of international migrants currently exceeds 244 million, both voluntary and involuntary. If they integrated a country, they would be the 5th largest country in the world in terms of population. Only a small part – less than 10% – concerns refugees: approximately 22.5 million, although these have increased 65% in the last 5 years (UNHCR, 2017).

Climate Change and Development

To ensure a fairer, more decent and sustainable world is more than ever a requirement of the international community and national levels.

Trade & Finances and Development 

In recent decades, world trade flows have undergone major changes: in the early 1990s, most goods and commodities were traded between countries with advanced economies, but today most trade is between developed and developing countries and the emerging markets/ developing economies. The main reason for this change is the relocation of production from industrialised economies to countries where labour costs are lower, particularly for Asian countries. Currently, one of the main trends is the increase of global and regional value chains created by international production networks increasingly based on inter-company trade.
