Eleventh Coordination Meeting on International Migration
21-22 February 2013




International migration is a global phenomenon
that is growing in scope,complexity and impact. Today, virtually all countries in the world are simultaneously countries of destination, origin and transit for international migrants. Traditional immigration patterns are complemented by new migratory flows, fuelled by changing economic, demographic, political and social conditions. Changing migration patterns affect the size and composition of immigrant populations as well as economies and societies in countries of origin and destination.

The rise in global mobility, the growing complexity of migratory patterns and the impact of such movements on development have all contributed to international migration becoming a priority for the international community.

The 2013 Coordination Meeting on International Migration will focus on recent migration trends and their relevance for development in countries of origin, destination and transit. The meeting will also address the importance of international migration on the United Nation development agenda, especially in light of the forthcoming High-level Dialogue on International Migration and Development to be held by the General Assembly on 3-4 October 2013.
