This special Journal of Comparative Economics issue on Migration and Development follows the 11th AFD-World Bank Migration and Development Conference that took place at Stanford University in July 2018. The conference is part of an annual series jointly sponsored by the Development Economics Research Group (DEC) of the World Bank and the Research Department of the French Development Agency (AFD). The conference series began at the University of Lille in June 2008. Each year since, the conference takes place at a different location, generally alternating between Europe and the USA. Past locations included the World Bank headquarters in Washington, D.C. (for the 2009 and 2015 conferences), the Paris School of Economics (2010), the Harvard Center for International Development (2011), the AFD headquarters in Paris (2012), Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco (2013), Oxford University (2014), the Migration Policy Center (MPC) of the European University Institute in Florence (2016), the Center for Research on International Development (CERDI) at the Université Clermont-Auvergne (2017), and the Stanford Center for Global Poverty and Development for the 2018 conference, to which this special issue is dedicated.
