A study on the nexus between development and migration-related financial flows to Ukraine.

IOM undertook a comprehensive study of migrant monetary flows to Ukraine with the goal of raising awareness of the enormous impact Ukrainian migrants have on the economy, and building the scientific base for an informed policy dialogue among all stakeholders on the future potential migrant remittances and savings have in this respect. In a consultative approach with the members of the Project Steering Committee, a set of policy recommendations have been developed and relevant areas for intervention have been identified, which we as IOM hope will serve as a starting point and guidance for developing efficient migration management policies, aimed at better harnessing the development impact of labour migration and engaging its capital in Ukraine’s development policies.
