"The wise management of international migration is one of the greatest challenges of our time, and the Commonwealth has unparalled experience to share. [...] This report, prepared under our direction by Dr. Alan Gamlen of the International Migration Institute, University of Oxford [...] covers four of our ten terms of reference, including human dimensions, brain drain, the role of diasporas, and remittance flows. This [report] covers a broad sweep. It makes a series of recommendations, which we commend to policymakers, and advocates the establishment of a Commonwealth Consultative Process. The Commonwealth, with its use of English and some 45million people living outside their land of birth, is an important continuing arena for world migration."
