International migration has become a global phenomenon involving a wide range of sending, destination, and transit countries and a diverse group of migrants. This report, produced by the United Nations and the International Organization for Migration, provides an authoritative account of contemporary trends, issues, and problems in the field of international migration. It examines the scale of migration and characteristics of international migrants, the types of movements, the contributing factors and policy issues. It also presents regional country profiles examining such issues as: trends in immigration and emigration; the integration of migrants; the consequences of irregular migration; and the extent of interregional cooperation between states.



Western Europe and the Mediterranean

Western Europe remains an important centre of intra- and inter-regional migration. No single type of population movement, country, or even continent-of origin dominates; a variety of economic, social, and political processes and events generates a range of population movements into and out of the region, back and forth across the Mediterranean, from central and eastern Europe, and from further afield in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the former Soviet Union.
