The relationship between migration and education is fraught with controversy. Major unresolved issues include: Does high-skilled emigration reduce productivity and the delivery of critical services in developing countries? What are the implications of high-skilled emigration for government support for education? Is low-skilled emigration entirely beneficial to origin developing countries? Does a parent migrating increase access to education for children left behind? And how can developing countries profit from the high-skilled diaspora? This paper reviews the insights available from the economic literature on the relationship between migration and education, with a view towards informing policy.
