Measuring well-governed migration: The 2016 Migration Governance Index

A study by The Economist Intelligence Unit

Measuring well-governed migration

We live in an era of unprecedented human mobility, in which over 244m international migrants worldwide are searching for economic opportunity, peace and security.

Well-governed migration brings profound benefits to both “receiving” and “sending” countries. Receiving countries get productive workers who fill key gaps in the labour market and help their demographic profiles. Sending countries receive billions of dollars in remittances from their overseas workers, attract investment from affluent members of their diaspora, and leverage the benefits of “circular migration” when returning emigrants bring back their skills, expertise, contacts and personal wealth.

AliWW Presents Stage-Play Inspired by MAM-Award Winning Book to Celebrate International Women’s Month "Pambansang Litanya Ng Mga Inang Wala Sa Bayan"


 “Their lives, their stories, narrated in their own distinct voices. Reading—or rather, listening to—individual OFW stories is like accompanying them in their often lonely journeys in distant lands. We sense the uncommon courage, we feel the heartbreak, we also glimpse the hope. These women serve, sweat and strive to give their best while in strange climes and on unfamiliar terrain. For family and country, for good or ill, in health or sickness, in fair weather or foul—till they come home again.” – blurb from the book Many Journeys, Many Voices

The Ateneo Library of Women’s Writings (ALiWW), with support from Western Union and the Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO), presented its one-act play entitled ‘Pambansang Litanya ng mga Inang wala sa Bayan’ on March 29, 2016 at the Singson Hall in the Ateneo Grade School.
