The multiple interactions between migration and development have not been sufficiently explored in the current literature. The idea that migration can foster and encourage development in the regions that produce it greatly depends on the context and the political approach of the governments in question. This article examines the case of Spain through an analysis of public management documents and discourse, as well as the ways in which contextual elements and concepts of immigration come together in a political attempt to establish intervention mechanisms that can assist and encourage a beneficial relationship. Among them is the specifically European approach of co-development, which is currently implemented in Spain by actors in the fields of cooperation and migration.
