Abstract: 
Migration is one of the defining features of the 21st century. It contributes significantly to all aspects of economic and social development everywhere, and as such will be key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
But migration can also negatively impact development, and though the relationship between the two is increasingly recognised, it remains under-explored. We must ensure migration contributes to positive development outcomes and, ultimately, to realising the Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the ‘2030 Agenda’). To do this, we need to understand the impact of migration on the achievement of all SDGs, and – equally – the impact this achievement will have on future migration patterns.
Here we collate, and draw out key findings from, a series of twelve ODI policy briefings which analyse the interrelationship between migration and key development areas. Each briefing explores how the links between migration and these different development issues affect the achievement of the SDGs, and offers pragmatic recommendations to incorporate migration into the 2030 Agenda to ensure it contributes to positive development outcomes.

Abstract: 
This paper is the outcome of a round table event that took place on the 4th of June2015 and which was organised in the context of the 8th EU-LAC Summit / 2nd EUCELAC Summit of 10-11 June 2015. This initiative, taken by the EU-LAC Foundation in partnership with the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels (BOZAR), with the support of the European Commission - DG DEVCO, EUNIC and More Europe - external cultural relations, had the objective of strengthening the relations between Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. More than 20 experts from different backgrounds - academics, members of international institutions, artists, journalists and specialists from private and public sectors and civil society - from those regions gathered to discuss the theme “Urban Development and Public Space: Culture as a Driver for Cities” which was in line with the Summit’s theme “Shaping our Common Future: working for prosperous, cohesive and sustainable societies for our citizens”.
