Trends in International Migration SOPEMI 2001 Edition (Complete Edition - ISBN 9264196706)
This report presents an analysis of recent trends in migration movements and policies in OECD countries as well as in certain non-member countries. It includes a detailed description of the flows, the different channels of immigration and the nationalities of the migrants concerned. It highlights the contribution of immigration to increases in the total population and the labour force and describes the changes that have taken place in the sectoral distribution of foreign workers. Particular attention is given to recent measures implemented by several Member countries to facilitate the recruitment of skilled and highly skilled foreign workers. The report notes that the control of flows remains a high priority on the agenda of migration policies, as does the integration of immigrants into the labour market and society as a whole together with the extension of co-operation with countries of origin. In addition to this overall analysis, the reader will also find in this publication: - Two sections on immigration flows from Asia and recent developments in migration movements in central and eastern European countries.- A special chapter devoted to a comparative analysis of student mobility between and towards OECD countries.- Country notes describing in detail recent developments in migration flows and policies - A statistical annex containing the most recent available data on foreign and immigrant populations, foreign workers, migration flows and naturalisations.
