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) and the Migration Policy Center (MPC) of the European University Institute in Florence for the 2016 conference, to which this special issue is dedicated. A special issue has been published in a prestigious journal each year, establishing the conference as the focal event in the field of migration and development economics.
