This infographic looks at international migration trends and what they mean for the future of our world.
International migration can be defined as the movement of people from one country to another, either temporarily or permanently. It is an important topic for economists, sociologists and politicians alike as it provides insight into the global economy and population distribution. International migration is a phenomenon that has been occurring for centuries. The reasons for migrating vary from person to person and country to country, but the general trend shows that more people are moving across borders than ever before.
With the world becoming smaller and smaller, people are traveling much more, and this has led to a rapid increase in international migration.
Migration has also become easier and safer in recent years. With new technologies like online banking, Skype and social media, it is easier for people to stay in touch with their families on the other side of the world.
Furthermore, as countries develop economically, they are attracting more migrants from poorer countries.
