Brookings Mountain West presents “International Migration and Economic Development of Global Metropolitan Areas,” a talk by Neil Ruiz, senior policy analyst and associate fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program.

International migration is a global and local development issue. Migrants across international borders are transformative agents with economic, social, and political ties to origins and destinations. Migrants are the agents that link local economies through global flows of knowledge, trade, capital, and production. Through their networks, international migrants serve as valuable bridges between U.S. metropolitan areas and regional economies in other countries, and can facilitate trade networks through exports, imports, or the circulation of knowledge and the production process.
