Item description for Asia-pacific Population Journal, December 2005 by Department United Nations...
About 175 million people or three per cent of the world's population are living away from their home countries, and IMF figures indicate that in 2003 migrants sent remittances worth an estimated US$154 billion. Migration is increasingly being seen as a development force that can help contribute to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. This special issue of the quarterly journal contains selected papers from a regional seminar on the 'Social Implications of Migration', held in Bangkok from 24 to 26 August 2005.
