State of world population 2006. A passage to hope. Women and international migration

05.06.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

94.5 million international migrants are women. On the occasion of a session of the United Nations General Assembly on migration, the UNFPA has prepared a report on the challenges and opportunities linked to women's international migration. The report focuses on the positive impact of migrant women on the socioeconomic development and destination countries. The dark side of migration is also addressed with a chapter on trafficking in women and the exploitation of women domestic workers. Indeed, migrant women are among the most vulnerable with regards to human rights violations, both as migrants and women.
