Abstract: Decision-makers increasingly look to use non-aid instruments, as well as aid, to achieve the goals of foreign aid policy. These non-aid policies include trade, investment, security and migration policy. Based on an analytical framework emphasizing the direction of causality and the degree of substitutability among policies, the paper reviews the interaction of migration policies and flows with aid and trade. From comparative country case studies, emerge stylized facts regarding the joint impact of these policies on a group of developing and transition economies. In conclusion, the paper proposes consideration of changes that would be needed in OECD-country migration policies to better promote development outcomes. This may be achieved notably through a better interaction with migrants’ networks, with particular attention to improving the quantity and quality of remittance flows and increasing equity in the distribution of the gains from migration.
