Summary
International migration is a complex phenomenon that touches on a range of economic, social and security aspects all around the world. Current estimates are that there are 281 million international migrants globally (or 3.6% of the world's population). While the vast majority of people in the world continue to live in the country in which they were born, more people are migrating to other countries.
