Internal migration and urbanization together is a fundamental demographic, social and economic feature of a country and have played a significant role in shaping the size and distribution of the population of Pakistan. Yet, internal migration and rapid urbanization have not received the analytical or policy attention that they deserve. This event will shed light on the policy research gap and draw attention to some of the salient characteristics of internal migration in Punjab.
