Abstract

This report seeks to highlight the crucial place that mobility and migration play in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Although mobility nor migration are mentioned in any of the 17 goals, their concepts are interwoven throughout their 169 targets. While the significant benefits of mobility and migration are known to many, the negative impacts of forced migration remain intact.
This report recognises the dualities that exist in this context and seeks to endorse the view of UN Secretary General Antonio Gutteres that mobility and migration are key drivers of prosperity, economic growth, reduced inequalities and connected societies, all of which are key elements of the sustainable development goals.
