Versiunea romana a paginii este in proces de actualizare.

The World Migration Report 2013: Migrant Well-Being and Development, launched this week by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Geneva, presents for the first time a global picture of the well-being of migrants.Drawing on the findings of a Gallup World Poll, which surveyed more than 25,000 migrants in over 150 countries, the report takes a fresh look at what life is really like for migrants in the world today, whether they migrate to and between rich countries in the North, or to and between poorer countries in the South.

The report investigates how migration leads or does not lead to a better life; how satisfied migrants are with their lives compared to the local population; if they find it more difficult to find jobs or start a business; and if they are more likely to report health problems. Migrants are given a unique opportunity to tell their own stories. Read more...
