General considerations

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS

Definition of ‘migrant’ covers permanent, temporary (voluntary) & refugees (involuntary). Also ‘documented’ or ‘undocumented’, as well as, ‘internal’ or ‘international’.

For many countries, the term may be associated with local realities – developing countries refer to ‘migrant workers’; developed countries may look at those coming in to settle permanently.

According to the UNDP Human Development Report 2009, there are many misconceptions about migrants – in fact, most migration is internal, also most international migration occurs within countries of same level of development.

Remittances are greater than ODA and FDI.

Remittances continue to increase through the economic & financial crisis.

Efforts are exerted to channel remittances to domestic investments (business and real estate) rather than to pure consumption.
