This work examines the role played by the state and private sectors in organizing labour migration, and the economic and social issues raised by such migration policies and programmes. It explores the question of whether, and how, migrant workers should be controlled and regulated to safeguard the interests of the sending state without infringing the basic rights of the individual.

At present there is no unified treatment, drawing together models to allow a consistent and reliable set of migration flows, across countries. This text seeks to do exactly that, potentially improving policies, planning and understanding about migration processes worldwide, via the presentation of migration estimation and modeling techniques. These modeling techniques are explored from both frequentist and Bayesian perspectives. The vital concepts such as missing data and collection methods (and their possible harmonization) are discussed in depth, and there are whole chapters dedicated to both modeling asylum flows and forecasts about the future of international migration.

In recent years, the issue of international migration has become a key concern in many countries, some of which have further tightened their policies towards immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers. The movement of people raises many policy challenges, since it has the potential for benefiting both the countries of origin and destination involved, by facilitating the transfer of skills and promoting cultural diversity. However, it can also entail the loss of human resources to the country of origin and may give rise to political, economic and social tensions in the destination country. This UN report summarises international migration trends and policies in developed and developing countries, as well as presenting profiles for individual countries, regions, major areas and special groups of countries. Current estimates indicate about 175 million people (or three per cent of the world's population) reside outside their country of birth, more than double the number since 1970. Most of the world's migrants live in the more developed regions and the countries with the largest international migrant populations are the United States (35 million) followed by the Russian Federation (13 million) and Germany (7 million).

The economic literature on international migration interests policymakers as well as academics throughout the social sciences. These volumes, the first of a new subseries in the Handbooks in Economics, describe and analyze scholarship created since the inception of serious attention began in the late 1970s. This literature appears in the general economics journals, in various field journals in economics (especially, but not exclusively, those covering labor market and human resource issues), in interdisciplinary immigration journals, and in papers by economists published in journals associated with history, sociology, political science, demography, and linguistics, among others. Covers a range of topics from labor market outcomes and fiscal consequences to the effects of international migration on the level and distribution of income – and everything in between. Encompasses a wide range of topics related to migration and is multidisciplinary in some aspects, which is crucial on the topic of migration Appeals to a large community of scholars interested in this topic and for whom no overviews or summaries exist
