Guidance Note: A Development Approach To Migration And Displacement
PDF File Size: 2.45 MB | Download   
Migration and displacement are important and rapidly growing phenomena. More and more people in all parts of the world are on the move. In general, international migration refers to the voluntary movement of women and men across internationally recognized borders. They are driven by their search for a better life, economic opportunities, education, or their desire to reunite with family members abroad. In contrast, the 1951 United Nations (UN) Convention on Refugees refers to forced displacement or forced migration as the situation of people who are forced to leave or flee their homes due to conflict, violence and human rights violations. A refugee is a person who “owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his or her nationality, and is unable to, or owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country.” An internally displaced person (IDP) is someone who is forced to flee his or her home, but who remains within his or her country’s borders. Other important forms of migration include internal migration, which refers to the general movement of people within national borders. For example, in recent years, the movement of people from rural to urban areas has led to rapid urbanization in many countries.
