A note on the private sector

The private sector is often an underestimated factor in most migration processes, yet it plays a key determining role in driving migration and bringing about sustainable development. Private sector inputs include employment, skill upgrades, capital and financial intermediation, technology and intellectual property, supply chains, cutting-edge business practices, policy influence, in-country networks, and other relevant expertise.

IASCI recognizes that the potential impact and interests of the private sector should be better reflected in the kinds of migration management processes that have traditionally been considered the concern of governments, specialized agencies and academia. The ability of governments to work with private companies, civil society actors and migrants has become an essential link in a viable migration-development value chain, one where private sector interests meet priority public sector objectives and the interests of the migrants themselves.
