The genesis of this study lies in the growing realization, both inside and outside the World Bank, that migration represents challenges and opportunities for both sending and receiving countries. A sound management of economic migration, based on cooperation between home and host countries and integrated into long-term development strategies, can have beneficial outcomes for both sides, as well as for the migrants and their households. The characteristics and specific needs of, as well as the advantages offered by, the countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) led the Bank’s MNA Region1 to initiate a program of country and regional investigations on this subject, of which this study is the culmination.
