This report is the ninth in the world migration report series which is designed as a substantive contribution to increasing the understanding of current and strategic migration issues throughout the world. It presents key data and information on migration as well as thematic chapters on highly topical migration issues. It is structured to focus on two key contributions for readers: Part I: key information on migration and migrants (including migration-related statistics); and Part II: balanced, evidence-based analysis of complex and emerging migration issues. The two parts are intended to provide both overview information that helps to explain migration patterns and processes globally and regionally, as well as insights and recommendations on major issues that policymakers are - or soon - will be grappling with.

Migration and migrants

Regional dimensions and developments

As the interest in migration has risen over time, so too has the amount of information published on this increasingly complex and most pressing global issue. Ideally, the knowledge originating from rigorous analysis and research on migration should be the prime source and starting point for informing policymakers, practitioners, students, scholars and the public about migration and how it is changing. However, the growth in publically available material on migration makes this increasingly hard. In an era of “information overload”, it can be challenging to identify, collect and digest relevant and robust material on migration.
