This policy arena investigates the impacts of the 2008 global financial crisis on poverty, migration and human well-being. It uses a human well-being lens to provide a framework for conceptualising a range of impacts that crosscut material and psychosocial domains. This review suggests a need to question the adequacy of existing migration policies aimed at 'managing migration' by measures such as stimulating return. It suggests that the global financial crisis requires a reframing of policy responses by moving beyond a focus on 'migration control' towards broader understandings of the poverty, international migration and human well-being nexus.
