With network members working on migration both in Europe and worldwide, SOLIDAR is well placed to engage in the debate on the issue of co-development, the concept that migration can benefit both the countries receiving and sending the migrant, as well as the migrant him or herself.

In particular, SOLIDAR has been critical of the notion being put forward by some that remittances can replace aid as a source of development funding, as well as questioning the logic behind some of the arguments put forward in the cause of temporary migration.

Read more about SOLIDAR’s views on co-development in the briefing "No magic wand: co-development as an integration tool" (2009).

You can also find out more in SOLIDAR’s co-development paper in English | French | Italian | Spanish (2007).
