Human Migration in South Asia: Dynamics and Implications

Conference | Subject : Migration
Conference Date :09-Oct-2014 To 11 Oct 2014

Human migration is basically a spatial mobility of population from one geographical area to another involving change of residence. The phenomenon of human migration has been taking place all across the globe and throughout human history. It is widely accepted that the actual peopling of South Asia resulted due to successive streams of migration coming in since ancient times mainly from the west of the Indian Sub-continent through mountain passes. As the region is enclosed by the lofty mountain chains in the north and the wide Indian Ocean in the south, all nations of South Asia, therefore, share almost the same history and the relationship between them dates back to prehistoric times. South Asia covers seven countries viz; Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka that have grouped themselves under the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) in December 1985.
