Author : ILO | 2016
Published By: ILO

Migration is a global and growing phenomenon. Migration comprises different kinds of movements: for employment, for family reasons, for study, or forced migration as a result of conflict or natural disasters. In Asia, international migration is most often about seeking employment, although all kinds of movement can be found. This chapter focuses on labor migration in Asia and by Asians around the world. It also looks at migration of Asians for study, at the labor market situation of Asian emigrants, and at the remittances they send home.
