The book includes four chapters related to studies on African and Latin American migration, at different and similar scales regarding some countries of Europe. The documents were presented by their authors at the workshop "Strengthening national capacities to deal with international migration: Maximizing development benefits and minimizing negative impacts", jointly organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). The studies addressed African and Latin American migration to Europe; international migration in Africa and institutional frameworks; and recent African migration to South America and institutional frameworks. They are accompanied by a report on the workshop presented by their authors.
