Migrant Facts

here were 258 million international migrants in the world last year, increasing almost 50 percent since 2000, according to the UN.
If all of the world's international migrants lived in a single country, it would be the world's fifth largest.
The number of migrants, representing 3.4 percent of the world's population, is increasing faster than the global population, driven by economic prosperity, inequality, violence, conflict and climate change.
More than 3,300 people have "died or gone missing in the process of migrations towards an international destination" in 2018.
Even in transit countries, or country of destination, racism, discrimination and human rights violations are continuously reported.
