Although international migration is mainly an urban phenomenon, very little research has been carried out on the relationship between migration and urban development. This latest volume in the ONE World series therefore investigates two key aspects of the migration/urban development nexus. Firstly, it considers the role and the still largely unexplored potential of migration in urban economies. Secondly, it focuses on current opportunities and challenges arising for migration / integration / development policy-making in urban settings, with case studies from Germany, supplemented by articles about China and the United States.

Featured authors are Patricia Ehrkamp, Stefanie Föbker, Norbert Gestring, Hans Dieter Laux, Zhigang Li, Josef Nipper, Carmella Pfaffenbach, Birte Rafflenbeul, Andrea Riester, Stefan Rother, Ann-Julia Schaland, Elena Sommer, Daniela Temme, Günter Thieme, Dita Vogel, Günther Weiss, Claus-Christian Wiegandt and Roman Windisch.

Volume 25 in the ONE World Series (only published in German) can be ordered directly from the Development and Peace Foundation or from the publisher Nomos Verlag.
