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.



Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States

Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) comprise a vast geographical region stretching from Prague to Vladivostock with a population of more than 550 million people. In 1989, this region consisted of only nine independent countries. Today, the number of countries has increased to 27. The establishment of so many new countries and the creation almost overnight of new minority groups within these countries was a major factor contributing to the tremendous increase in migration in this region at the beginning of the 1990s.
