About this course

International migration is a growing phenomenon involving the international community as a whole and engaging Member States in the protection of human rights. Analyzing migration as a crosscutting topic and understanding the challenges faced both by migrants and Member States is crucial for the development and implementation of national policies compliant with international human rights standards. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs International Migration Report 2017, approximately 258 million people reside outside their country of birth. This number has continued to grow over the past seventeen years.

In target 10.7 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Member States pledge to “Facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people, including through the implementation of planned and well-managed migration policies”. This is a clear indicator of the major relevance recognized to international migration by the Agenda 2030.
