International Migration, particularly from developing countries, has continuously grown in magnitude and complexity. The four volumes in this series are the outcome of an IOM research project carried out in the 1990s, with the support of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), when widespread concern was being expressed about the increasing numbers of refugees, irregular migrants and asylum seekers in many parts of the world.
In order to understand the complexity and magnitude of the process, research focused on both the nature and the reality of the migration option for persons in developing countries, as well as the decision-making processes of those who did emigrate (i.e. why some persons emigrate but others in similar circumstances do not, where they go and the channels they utilize to get there). The purpose of the research was to address the root causes of migration especially as it relates to poverty; to encourage cooperation and dialogue between origin and destination countries and to facilitate the reintegration process of returning migrants.
