How to make migration a win-win-win strategy?

By ensuring that the whole initiation has

  • a sustainable migration management system that takes into account the interests of the various stakeholders involved;
  • a clear identification and articulation of objectives and interests in migration by key stakeholders, based on a common conceptual framework for migration and development:
  • regional and bilateral coordination mechanisms to balance these (potentially divergent) objectives and to reach compromise under labor agreements and policies; and
  • effective, evidence-based polices, and public and private sector interventions to achieve the objectives that are known and applied at the levels of sending, receiving, returning, and circulating.

Here is more by Holzmann and Pouget (2010). Quite a mouthful of recommendations! Win-win-win scenario is for labor, migrant’s country, and host country.
