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.

Rethinking local sustainable development



The “transformation of our world” onto a sustainable path – as agreed upon by the UN member states in the Agenda 2030 – requires more than one-off projects. How can a  fundamental change in policies, in the society and the economy be initiated? What can municipalities contribute to this shift towards sustainable development and how can the local impetus be escalated to the other political levels? The Bonn Symposium 2018 aims to stimulate ideas and inject fresh momentum into the debate about these issues.

Anchoring global governance in societies


The opponents of global cooperation touch a nerve when they talk about global governance as an elitist project. The embedding of global governance at a societal level remains relatively weak. In our International sef: Expert Workshop 2018, we therefore aim to identify new strategies which could contribute to the progressive anchoring of global governance in society.

The Global Refugee Crisis: Towards a just response


With their effort to keep refugees and migrants out of their territories, Western nations abdicate their historical and political responsibility, according to the analysis of the renowned Indian migration researcher B.S. Chimni in GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS 03|2018. Chimni therefore calls for a just response from the international community to the global refugee crisis. Such a response could only consist of a multidimensional strategy that had to be worked out in a genuine dialogue between all stakeholders.
