International Law and Migration


Approximately 258 million people, or roughly 3 % of the world’s population, live outside their country of origin or habitual residence – the highest number ever recorded. Of these, approximately 10 %, or about 25 million people, have fled their country as refugees – the largest number since WWII. Millions of civilians have fled or are fleeing their homes, escaping from war and terror, hunger and persecutions, ecological disasters and poverty.
