Promoting development-friendly migration policies in Viet Nam through enhancing the evidence base for policy

Duration: 24 months (2013 – 2015)

Vietnamese migrants are leaving the country in significant numbers, notably for work and study. Despite the potential contribution of international migration to Viet Nam’s development, there exist some problems, such as underemployment upon return, migration-related debt, and also increasing irregular migration from and to Vietnam.

This project aims to promote development-friendly migration policies through enhancing the evidence base for policy development, strengthening coordination and information-sharing within the government, and encouraging evidence-based dialogue on emerging migration challenges and migration’s development benefits.

The project is part of a broader program on enhancing the linkage between migration management and development in Viet Nam.
