Almost 90 million people, 1 out of every 35, are living outside their country of birth due to globalization, the negative impact of free trade, lack of decent work in the home country, health emergencies, poverty, war and discrimination.

Of the million or more people who are trafficked across international borders every year, 70% are women, and 50% are children who are at grave risk of violent treatments and sexual abuse.

Migrant workers are often in situations similar to slavery or forced labor involving increased risk of abuse and exploitation. Those who are undocumented rarely seek justice for fear of expulsion.
Countries are very hesitant to discuss migration and have been very successful in not addressing this issue and delaying any action.
