Literature review: corruption as a driver of migration

U4 Expert Answer 2015:24

Migration is one of the most pressing issues of our time as millions of people flee their home countries in search of security, better jobs and an improved quality of life.

From the literature on corruption, security and economic opportunities, one can assume that corruption is a driver of migration through its impact on economic opportunities and security, but more research and resources should be allocated to explore the direct linkages between corruption, economic opportunities, security issues and migration.
