International migration, the movement of people across international boundaries, continues to be one of the most important issues of the global policy agenda for it generates enormous economic, social, and cultural implications in both sending and receiving countries.
The report also acknowledges that almost one of every 10 persons living in developed countries is a migrant. The more developed regions receive each year about 2. The increase in the total number of migrants boosted the flow of formal remittances from migrants to their relatives in their country of origin as well.
The remittance flow has doubled in the last decade, reaching billion US Dollars inwith billion US Dollars going to developing countries 2. It surpasses foreign aid and is the largest source of foreign capital for dozens of countries 3. Historically, migration was considered and used as a last resort to maintain a moderate living standard which was deemed impossible to acquire in origin countries, and at the time it successfully responded to significant labor needs of the destination countries.
Then, migrants had no difficulty to find jobs in host countries. However, economic, demographic and political developments coupled with the mounting concerns over the future of labor supply have renewed the attention of policy-makers on labor migration issues once again.
Those were the years of a good economic climate, high economic growth and lower unemployment rates in some developed countries. The demographic developments in those countries, on the other hand, tended to imply an ageing workforce and ultimately result in a declining population of working age. In such environment, employers started to experience difficulties in finding workers with necessary qualifications.
This meant a renewed interest in services of migrant workers 5. The need for migrants coincided with the growing global unemployment crisis, and the migrants enthusiastically responded to the calls for recruitment by the developed economies.
At the same time, the governments of the developed countries inclined to develop policies which placed new mechanisms in order to better address their labor market needs. The new immigration policies were selective in nature and targeted those migrants who can fully respond to the labor market needs and easily integrate with receiving communities, causing new challenges for the economies of sending countries.
Against this backdrop, the need for formulating effective policies, which will enable the governments of the receiving countries to reconcile the interests of their populations and the demands of millions who are in search of better living standards, has become the most daunting issue to address.
The answer to this question is certainly not an easy one and requires meticulous analyses of the issue considering the fact that we live in such a globally interconnected world that any decision taken in one country for action will have to take into account the possible adverse effects it may give rise in another.
For the sake of clarity and better understanding of such a complicated issue, the reader is also provided with an overview of recent international migration trends in the following chapter.
The Recent Trends of International Migration: The patterns of the flow of people between countries are widely influenced by international economic, political and cultural interrelations. International economic disparities, poverty and environmental degradation, combined with the absence of peace and security and human rights violations are all factors affecting international migration.
Today, it is estimated that there are nearly million migrants are living in countries in which they were not born. According to the most recent UN statistics, Asia has some 49 million migrants, Africa 16 million and the Latin America and Caribbean region 6 million 6.
It is also worth to note that the composition and concentration of stock of migrants considerably differ from those of the past. According to a UN publication entitled Trends in Total Migration Stock, most of the migrants are concentrated in a small number of countries.
The predominant form of migration varies considerably from one part of the world to another as well. In Asia, for example, many migrants move on the basis of temporary labor contracts.
In Americas and Africa, irregular migration is far more common phenomenon. Countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA continue to accept migrants for permanent settlement and citizenship, while the countries of the Middle East usually admit international migrants for fixed periods.
In Europe, the major preoccupation of recent years has been the arrival of asylum seekers from other parts of the world 8.
However, the global oil crises have put an end to this type migration in most developed countries, saving only family and humanitarian migration.
What renewed the attention of policy-makers on labor migration issue was nothing but a mere result of new economic, demographic and political developments.
A good economic climate and years of economic growth in some developed countries have led to increasing employment, higher participation and lower unemployment rates. Aging population of developed economies coupled with falling fertility rates created serious concerns over sustainability of labor markets.
As a result, the capacity of these economies to digest a bigger stock of migrants was expanded. However, having faced with serious difficulties concerning the integration of previous stock of migrants into their societies, the governments of the receiving countries started to be more selective in their immigration policies.
They tended to target those migrants who can better respond to their labor market needs and easily integrate with their communities. The new policies also helped the receiving countries bring some sort of stability to the flow of migrants as well. Needless to say, such policies had created new implications on the economies of sending countries.
The loss of qualified human resources for many countries of origin is the one which has been most cited. The upshot is, the number of migrants continues to grow despite the changes in the immigration policies of the receiving countries to stabilize it.
The current global job crisis seems to do nothing but fuel this tendency in the coming years.In order to bring about the major changes required by ESD, we need to nurture a climate of safety.
