4 DESA The Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat is a vital interface between global policies in the economic, social and environmental spheres and national action. The Department works in three main interlinked areas: (i) it compiles, generates and analyses a wide range of economic, social and environmental data and information on which States Members of the United Nations draw to review common problems and take stock of policy options; (ii) it facilitates the negotiations of Member States in many intergovernmental bodies on joint courses of action to address ongoing or emerging global challenges; and (iii) it advises interested Governments on the ways and means of translating policy frameworks developed in United Nations conferences and summits into programmes at the country level and, through technical assistance, helps build national capacities. Note The designations employed in this report and the material presented in it do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the Secretariat of the United Nations concerning the legal status of any country, territory, city or area or of its authorities, or concerning the delimitation of its frontiers or boundaries. Symbols of United Nations documents are composed of capital letters combined with figures. This publication has been issued without formal editing.

5 PREFACE The Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) of the United Nations Secretariat is responsible for providing the international community with up-to-date and objective information on population and development. The Division provides guidance to the United Nations General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council and the Commission on and Development on population and development issues. The Division also undertakes regular studies on population levels, trends and dynamics, including trends of international migration, changes in population policies and the interrelationships between population and development. In the area of international migration, the Division estimates the global number of international migrants at regular intervals, monitors levels, trends and policies of international migration, and collects and analyses information on the relationship between international migration and development. The Migration Section also convenes the interagency coordination meeting on international migration and organizes expert group meetings. As part of its monitoring activities, the Migration Section within the Division maintains the United Nations Global Migration Database, which contains the most complete set of statistics on international migrants enumerated in the countries or areas of the world and classified by country of birth or citizenship, sex and age. On behalf of DESA, the Migration Section participates in the interagency Global Migration Group (GMG). The Section also services the intergovernmental process on international migration and development at the General Assembly and acts within the Secretariat as the focal point for the State-led Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD). This report presents information on international migration levels, trends and legal instruments for major areas, regions and countries of the world. The data for the international migrant stock are taken from the publication Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision. The estimates on the total population, net migration and the projected population up to 25 are based on World Prospects: The 28 Revision. For the first time, data on international migration flows for a selected group of countries are included in the analysis. The data come from the dataset International Migration Flows to and from Selected Countries: The 28 Revision. The analysis of the ratification status of migration-related legal instruments for Member States of the United Nations and the International Labour Organization (ILO) is based on information from the United Nations Treaty Section which can be accessed at treaties.un.org. For more information on the data and methodology used for calculating the various indicators used in this report, please see the above-mentioned publications. Responsibility for this report rests with the Division. Preparation of this publication was facilitated by the ongoing work of the regional commissions, the specialized agencies and other relevant bodies of the United Nations, in particular the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Division is also grateful to the Statistics Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs for its continuing cooperation.

19 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The : A Global Assessment, prepared by the Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, is the third in a series which presents information on international migration levels and trends and the status of ratification of international legal instruments relevant to international migration as well as related indicators for major areas, regions and countries of the world. International migration has moved to the forefront of the national and international agenda. The United Nations system is addressing the various dimensions of this topic. The United Nations Secretariat has focused on the collection, analysis and dissemination of information on the levels and trends of international migration. Other parts of the United Nations system have been concerned with issues such as migrant rights, human trafficking and the social and economic integration of migrants. In addition, specialized agencies have focused on topics related to their expertise and mandates, such as labour migration, refugee protection and remittance flows. Since 26, several initiatives have been launched at the global level to enhance the benefits and to address the challenges posed by international migration. In 26, the General Assembly convened the High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development, the first high-level event in the United Nations exclusively devoted to international migration. Participants recognized that international migration, development and human rights were intrinsically interconnected. They also affirmed that, provided that international migration was supported by appropriate policies, it could be a positive force for development in both countries of origin and destination. Following a proposal by the Secretary-General at that meeting, the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) was subsequently created. By 21, Belgium, the Philippines, Greece and Mexico had hosted the Global Forum on Migration and Development. This informal, non-binding, voluntary and State-led process fosters practical cooperation between Governments in order to maximize the developmental benefits of international migration and to reduce its negative impacts. It does not produce normative decisions or negotiated outcomes. The Special Representative of the Secretary-General on International Migration and Development, appointed in early 26, is the main link between the United Nations and the Global Forum process. In response to the 25 report of the Global Commission on International Migration (GCIM), the Secretary-General established the Global Migration Group (GMG) in early 26. This inter-agency group brings together heads of agencies to promote the wider application of all relevant international and regional instruments and norms in relation to migration. The group promotes the adoption of more coherent, comprehensive and better coordinated approaches to international migration. As of 211, the Group consisted of 16 members which has organized joint meetings, produced joint publications and provided support to the Global Forum. Since 1994, international migration and development is addressed in the General Assembly s Second Committee every two years. Human rights of migrants are a recurrent item on the agenda of the Assembly s Third Committee. In its resolution 61/28 of 2 December 26, reproduced in the back of this publication, the General Assembly took note of the summary of the High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development by the President of the General Assembly, welcomed the heightened awareness achieved by the High-level Dialogue on the topic and decided to consider, at its sixty-third session, possible options for appropriate follow-up. It also took note with interest of the establishment of the Global Migration Group in 26. Two years later, the General Assembly decided in its resolution 63/225 of 19 December 28 to hold another High-level Dialogue during its sixty-eighth session in 213 and decided that the focus and modalities of this High-level Dialogue would be decided during its sixty-seventh session. xvii

20 In 26, during its thirty-ninth session, the Commission on and Development also addressed international migration and development. Among many other points raised, the Commission acknowledged the important contribution made by migrants and migration to development in countries of origin and destination. It also recognized the need for Member States to consider the multidimensional aspects of international migration and development in order to identify appropriate ways and means of maximizing the development benefits and minimizing the negative impacts. The Commission also requested the Secretary-General to continue his substantive work on international migration and development. This report is a direct response to Member States request to provide information and analysis on international migration levels and trends for countries, regions and for the world as a whole. The many questions arising from growing concerns about international migration, however, have few clear answers largely because of the lack of accurate and up-to-date information on international migration. The Division is also working with its counter parts at the international level and countries to raise awareness in this regard and encourages the collection, tabulation and dissemination of international migration data that is accessible, comparable, timely and reliable. The number of indicators in this report is larger in comparison with the previous issue (United Nations, ESA/P/WP.29), and includes data by sex when possible. For many countries, there is sufficient information to provide a reasonable basis for the estimation of migrants stocks. For some countries, however, information is limited or unavailable, and in such cases, imputations were made. Furthermore, data on citizenship, if available, are used for estimating the numbers of international migrants in the absence of data on place of birth. In addition to estimates on the migrant stock, numbers of refugees and workers remittances, population data by sex, are listed. In the Annex, a separate table shows whether a country is party to international instruments such as the 1951 Convention and the 1967 Protocol, both relating to the status of refugees, the Convention concerning Migration for Employment (Revised 1949) (No. 97), the Convention concerning Migrations in Abusive Conditions and the Promotion of Equality of Opportunity and Treatment of Migrant Workers (Supplementary Provisions) (No. 143) and the 199 International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrants and Members of Their Families. The table also lists the ratification status of the 2 Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children and the 2 Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air. Key findings: 1. By 21, the estimated number of international migrants was 214 million, an increase of 58 million since 199. represented 3.1 per cent of the total world population in 21 (table 1). 2. In 21, more developed regions hosted 6 per cent of the total migrant stock. The growth in the international migrant stock in more developed regions has been slowing recently and the growth rate of the migrant stock for less developed regions surpassed the growth rate for more developed regions for the first time in xviii

In 21, the largest number of international migrants lived in Europe (7 million), followed by Asia (61 million) and Northern America (5 million). There were 19 million international migrants living in Africa, seven in Latin America and the Caribbean and six in Oceania. Oceania had the highest percentage of international migrants relative to the total population (16.8 per cent), followed by Northern America (14.2 per cent) and Europe (9.5 per cent). In Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, international migrants accounted for less than 2 per cent of the total population. 4. A relatively small number of countries hosted most of the world s international migrants in 21. Ten countries with the largest number of international migrants accounted for 52 per cent of the global migrant stock. Twenty per cent of all international migrants were residing in the United States alone (42.8 million) (table 2). TABLE 2.

22 5. In 21, the number of refugees was estimated at 16.3 million representing 8 per cent of the total migrant stock in the world. Eighty-six per cent of all refugees in the world, or 14 million, were residing in less developed regions. Asia hosted by far the largest number of refugees (1.9 million), followed by Africa (2.6 million), Europe (1.6 million), Northern America (.7 million), Latin America and the Caribbean (.5 million) and Oceania (.1 million). 6. The increase in the global refugee population was concentrated in less developed regions between 2 and 21. Asia experienced a 23 per cent increase, whereas Europe s refugee population declined by 36 per cent and Africa s by 28 per cent. The large increase in refugees in Latin America and the Caribbean was due to the recent inclusion of persons in refugee-like situations in several countries in the regions, which the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) had previously not reported as refugees. 7. Female migrants represented almost half of the total international migrant stock in 21. This situation has changed very little over the last 2 years. In developed countries, women and girls accounted for 51.5 per cent of all international migrants in 21, as were 45.3 per cent in developing countries. 8. In 21, female migrants outnumbered male migrants in Europe, followed by Oceania, Northern America and Latin America and the Caribbean. Men continued to outnumber women in Africa and Asia. 9. International migration flows to traditional countries of immigration, such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States, increased between 198 and 28.The United States admitted the largest number of immigrants in the world, with an average of about 1.1 million permanent residence permits issued per year between 25 and 28. This was followed by Canada with 25, foreigners and 145, foreigners and citizens admitted to Australia over the same period. For New Zealand, the annual inflow of foreigners stood at 6, between 25 and 28. Over the last 3 years, immigrants from less developed countries accounted for a growing share of immigrants to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States. 1. Since the 198, most countries in Europe have experienced increasing immigration. In addition to countries in Europe that have attracted immigrants for some time, such as France, Germany and the United Kingdom, former countries of emigration, such as Italy and Spain, have become preferred destinations for immigrants from other parts of Europe as well as from developing countries. 11. Inflows to Europe increased in the late 198s and 199s in part due to the fall of the Berlin wall and the collapse of communism in Eastern and Central Europe which resulted in travel restrictions being lifted for these countries. Germany was the country most affected by emigration from Eastern Europe with ethnic Germans moving to Germany in the early 199s. By 2, the inflow from that region had declined. The dissolution of the former USSR also led to significant movement of populations between successor states. The civil war in the former Yugoslavia generated large outflows of refugees and asylum seekers between 199 and xx

23 12. Countries in Northern Europe that used to have low levels of immigration in the past experienced an increase since the mid-2s, especially due to the arrival of asylum seekers and refugees. 13. Between 198 and 28, the majority of immigrants to Europe came from developed countries, especially other European countries. In absolute numbers, the inflow of immigrants from less developed countries was high in France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The numbers increased for France and the United Kingdom between 199 and mid-2, but not for Germany. The number of immigrants to Italy and Spain from less developed regions also increased. However, immigration from less developed regions began to stall or decline in mid Between 195 and 21, the more developed regions have been gaining population due to positive net migration, whereas the less developed regions have been losing population due to negative net migration. Northern America (1.3 million annually for 2-21) and Europe (1.5 million annually) are the major areas currently gaining the most from net immigration, whereas Asia (1.3 million annually) and Latin America and the Caribbean (1.1 million annually) are losing the most (table 3). Development group or major area TABLE 3. ANNUAL NET MIGRATION BY DEVELOPMENT GROUP AND MAJOR AREA, ESTIMATES AND MEDIUM VARIANT PROJECTION, Annual net migration (thousands) More developed regions Less developed regions Least developed countries Africa Asia Europe Latin America and the Caribbean Northern America Oceania Source: United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division (29). World Prospects: The 28 Revision. Extended Dataset: Disk 1. (United Nations publication, Sales No. 9.XII.6) For 2-21, the United States followed by Spain and Italy were the top net immigration countries, whereas Mexico, China and Pakistan were the top net emigration countries. For the future, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom are projected to be leading the group of net immigration countries and Mexico, China and India the group of net emigration countries. 16. During 21-25, the net number of international migrants to more developed regions is projected to be 96 million or an average of 2.4 million annually. For the developed world, such a level of net migration largely offsets the expected excess of deaths over births. Despite continued positive net migration, however, the surplus in deaths is projected to dominate population change starting by leading to overall population decline. For developing countries, the 96 million net emigrants projected for 21-25, or 2.4 million annually, represent scarcely 4 per cent of the expected population growth. Thus, net migration will have little effect on overall population change in less developed countries. 17. Assuming no migration in the future, the population of developed countries is projected to be 1 per cent smaller in 25 than for the medium variant projection which assumes that current (2-21) net migration levels remain constant. Given the little effect net migration has on xxi

24 developing countries, their population is projected to be only 2 per cent higher under a zeromigration scenario. 18. The dependency ratio, or the ratio of the young and old population to the working-age population, will increase under the zero migration-scenario for more developed regions. For every 1 working adults, there were 4.8 dependent persons in 21 rising to 7.1 dependent persons in 25 assuming that current migration trends will continue. Under the zero-migration scenario, the dependency ratio will increase to 7.6 dependent persons per 1 working adults. There will hardly be any change in dependency ratios for the less developed regions under the zero-migration scenario. 19. The status of ratification for international instruments related to international migration, such as those focusing on human rights and those addressing migrant worker rights, varies by Member States. Instruments designed to protect refugees and to prevent and prosecute migrant smuggling and human trafficking have been ratified by more than two-thirds of Member States by 29, whereas instruments protecting the rights of migrant workers have been ratified by less than onethird of Member States, none of which are high-immigration countries. 2. By July 29, 144 countries or 75 per cent of United Nations Member States had signed the 1951 Refugee Convention and the 1967 Refugee Protocol. The 2 protocol relating to human trafficking and the 2 protocol relating to migrant smuggling, although close to ten years old, had been ratified by 131 countries (68 per cent) and 119 countries (6 per cent) respectively. While the trend for the 2 Human Trafficking Protocol continued to rise, the 2 Migrant Smuggling Protocol was falling behind. Lastly, the 199 Migration Workers Convention, close to 2 years old, had only been ratified by 41 countries or 22 per cent of United Nations Member States. 21. The countries having ratified the 199 International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrants and Members of Their Families collectively hosted 15.3 million international migrants in 21, about seven per cent of the global migrant population. None of the States Parties to the 199 Convention were major migrant receiving countries, and only five of them hosted more than one million international migrants.

27 I. INTERNATIONAL MIGRANT STOCK A. DATA CONSIDERATIONS The international migrant stock is a mid-year estimate of the number of people living in a country or area other than the one in which they were born. Most of the statistics used to estimate the international migrant stock were obtained from population censuses. Additionally, population registers and nationally representative surveys provided information on the number and composition of international migrants. The estimates have been published in Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision (United Nations database, POP/DB/MIG/Stock/Rev.28). B. GLOBAL TRENDS In 21, the number of international migrants in the world was estimated at 214 million, an increase of 35 million since 2 and 58 million since 199. represented 3.1 per cent of the total world population, 1.3 per cent of the population in the more developed regions and 1.5 per cent of the population in the less developed regions (table 4). The more developed regions experienced the largest increase in migrant stock between 199 and 21 (45 million or 55 per cent). In 21, almost 6 per cent of all international migrants were living in the more developed regions compared to 53 per cent in 199. In the less developed regions, the migrant stock increased by 13 million (18 per cent) from 199 to 21. TABLE 4.

Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision (United Nations database, POP/DB/MIG/Stock/Rev.28). Europe hosted the largest number of international migrants in the world (7 million) in 21, representing one-third of the global total. The second largest number of international migrants were in Asia (61 million), followed by Northern America (5 million), Africa (19 million), Latin America and the Caribbean (7 million) and Oceania (6 million). Oceania had the highest percentage of international migrants relative to the total population (16.8 per cent), followed by Northern America (14.2 per cent) and Europe (9.5 per cent). In Africa, Asia and United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs/ Division 1

28 Latin America and the Caribbean international migrants accounted for less than 2 per cent of the total population. A relatively small number of countries hosted most of the world s international migrants (table 5). In 21, the ten countries with the largest number of international migrants accounted for 52 per cent of the total international migrant stock; 2 countries hosted two-thirds of all international migrants. In 21, 2 per cent of all international migrants were residing in the United States of America alone (42.8 million), followed by the Russian Federation (12.3 million) and Germany (1.8 million). Overall, 64 countries hosted more than half a million international migrants in 21, compared to 57 in 199. TABLE 5.

Between 2 and 21, nine countries gained over one million international migrants, accounting for 67 per cent of the overall increase in the migrant stock over the last 1 years: United States (8. million), Spain (4.6 million), Italy (2.3 million), Saudi Arabia (2.2 million), the United Kingdom (1.7 million), Canada (1.6 million), the Syrian Arab Republic (1.3 million) and Jordan and the United Arab Emirates with one million each (table 6). 2 United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs/ Division

Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision (United Nations database, POP/DB/MIG/Stock/Rev.28). The number of countries with more than one million inhabitants where international migrants constituted more than 1 per cent of the population rose from 29 in 199 to 38 in 21. Countries with the highest proportion of international migrants in 21 were mostly located in Western Asia with Qatar (87 per cent), the United Arab Emirates (7 per cent) and Kuwait (69 per cent) leading this group of countries due to the high level of international labour migration relative to total population (figure 1).

30 In 21, the number of refugees was estimated at 16.3 million, up from 15.6 million in 2 but down from 18.5 million in 199 (table 7). The proportion of refugees among all international migrants had declined from 12 per cent in 199 to 9 per cent in 2 and 8 per cent in 21. Asia hosted the largest number of refugees 1.9 million or 66 per cent of all refugees in the world in 21. This was followed by Africa with 2.6 million refugees or 16 per cent, Europe with 1.6 million or 1 per cent, Northern America with 73, refugees, Latin America and the Caribbean with 53, refugees and Oceania with 59, refugees. TABLE 7. ESTIMATED REFUGEE STOCK AT MID-YEAR AND THEIR SHARE IN THE INTERNATIONAL MIGRANT STOCK, 199, 2 AND 21 Development group and major area Estimated number of refugees (millions) Refugees as a percentage of the international migrant stock distribution of refugees World More developed regions Less developed regions Least developed countries Africa Asia Europe Latin America and the Caribbean Northern America Oceania Source: United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division (29). Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision (United Nations database, POP/DB/MIG/Stock/Rev.28). Eighty-five per cent of all refugees were living in less developed regions in 21 (table 7). Growth in the global refugee population between 2 and 21 was also concentrated in the less developed regions. Asia experienced a 23 per cent increase, whereas Europe s refugee population declined by 36 per cent and Africa s by 28 per cent. The large increase in refugees in Latin America and the Caribbean, from 5, in 25 to over half a million in 21, was due to the recent inclusion of persons in refugee-like situations in several countries in the region, which were previously not reported as refugees by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Although over the last 2 years the more developed regions gained the most international migrants, the annual growth rate of the international migrant stock in more developed regions had been declining, whereas the growth rate of the less developed regions had been steadily increasing (figure 2). In 21, the growth rate for the less developed regions surpassed the rate for the more developed regions for the first time. 4 United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs/ Division

Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision (United Nations database, POP/DB/MIG/Stock/Rev.28). Globally, female migrants constituted almost half of the total international migrant stock in 21 (table 8). This situation has changed little over the last 2 years. About 51.5 per cent of all international migrants in the more developed regions were women in 21, as were 45.3 per cent in less developed regions. Since 2, both the more and less developed regions showed a declining trend in the proportion of women. TABLE 8. FEMALE MIGRANTS AS A PERCENTAGE OF THE INTERNATIONAL MIGRANT STOCK BY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, female Development group World More developed regions Less developed regions Least developed countries Source: United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Division (29). Trends in International Migrant Stock: The 28 Revision (United Nations database, POP/DB/MIG/Stock/Rev.28). There is more variation in the sex distribution of the migrant stock at the level of major areas. For some time, most migrants in Europe have been female, whereas male migrants have outnumbered female migrants in Asia and Africa (figure 3). In Latin America and the Caribbean and Oceania, women have accounted for a growing share of the migrant stock recently, and have represented 5 per cent or more of the total migrant stock since 2. In Northern America, the proportion of female migrants declined from 51.2 per cent in 199 to 5.1 per cent in 21. United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs/ Division 5
