DELGADO WISE, Raúl. Observations on the theory and practice of the relationship between migration and development: a South perspective. Migr. desarro [online]. 2018, vol.16, n.31, pp.13-39. ISSN 1870-7599.

This paper focuses on an analysis of the relationship between migration and development, while offering a critical view of the increasingly important field of study, which is increasingly of greater interest in the political sphere. The underlying conceptual approach is characterized as a south perspective, a counter to the hegemonic perspectives in the field. The nexus between migration and development is conceived as a dialectic relationship that unfolds in one particular phase of contemporary capitalism: the era of generalized monopolies, according to Samir Amin. Particular emphasis is given to the need to expand the concept of forced migration and strategic development indicators to demystify the dominant narrative. A complementary theme in this study lies in a critical view of theory and practice in the subject field. To that end, the participation of civil society in the nascent and fragile process of the global governance of migration is briefly explored through two differing and contrasting spaces: the Global Forum on Migration and Development and the World Social Forum on Migrations.

Palabras llave : migration and desvelopment; South perspective; forced migration; civil society; global governance.
