Table 5. Despite the fact that migrant-workers make up less than 4.2 per cent of the total number of economically active population of the developed countries, the role of labor migration for many receiving countries is much more significant. Thus, the conducted analysis showed that resulting documents of conferences and summits contain various recommendations for improving the migration policy. The mortality and fertility rates, growing gap in demographic potentials between less developed and more developed nations, as well as globalization of the world economy have resulted in the growing role of international migration in the demographic development of the globe. As for developed states, it is the principal (and in some countries – the only one) determinant of the population growth, while in the developing states it contributes to the decrease in the population growth rate and alleviates ‘population pressure’.

Additionally, capital (money) is being moved globally with the ease of electronic transference and a rise in perceived investment opportunities. Nowadays, migrants live almost in every country of the world (UN 2016). 3, May 2012 191 Manuscript received February 17, 2012; revised April 6, 2012. A discussion and release in Bangkok of an MPI-IOM issue brief examining the role of migration as a driver for development in Asia and how to integrate migration-related targets and indicators into the post-2015 development agenda. Sending countries may experience both gains and losses in the short term but may stand to gain over the longer term. It shows regional migration hubs which receive a highly diverse immigrant population – mostly from the same region but also and increasingly from all over the globe. While international migration has not accelerated on a global level, main shifts in global migration have been directional and are linked to major geopolitical and economic shifts, the concomitant rise of new migration hubs in Europe, the Gulf, and Asia, development‐driven emigration hikes in origin countries, and the lifting of emigration restrictions in former Communist and developing countries. Contemporary Philosophical Problems (pp. Increased migration probably plays only a small role in wage convergence. Regional cooperation for the management of labor migration can be divided into formal mechanisms of regional integration (migration policy as a component of regional integration), regional inter-state agreements (migration policy in the framework of inter-state agreements within a region) and less formal mechanisms, such as regional consultative processes and other informal arrangements. Table 4. This trend is closely related to the probably most painful phenomenon in international migration known as ‘brain drain’ which is a non-return migration of highly skilled specialists – scientists, engineers, physicians, etc. For example, the economic development usually requires liberalization of migration policy, while the interests of national security often require stricter policy, which could be vividly observed after the 9/11 events in the United States.

Migration increases globalization by creating a greater diversity of cultures, different ideas, and increasing the way the economy grows. The receiving countries financially benefit from labor migration mainly via receiving tax payments, while for sending countries the financial inflow from migrant workers is more diverse. The author also points out that only a reasonable migration policy can provide a legitimate field for international migration and rational use of migrants' skills. We often hear the word globalization in many contexts and repeated frequently as a concept to denote more trade, foreign companies and even the ongoing economic crisis. At the present stage the following three levels of international migration management can be distinguished: – the global (world) level associates with a set of international treaties, agreements and other bilateral and multilateral normative legal acts on regulation of interstate territorial movements of population, and which pursues social, economic, demographic, geopolitical purposes, etc. Moscow.

The shifts in the qualitative structure of migration flows mean, first of all, an increasing number of skilled professionals among international migrants. The most important issue for receiving governments is to realize that irregular immigration is neither a form of terrorism or criminality to fight with by all means, nor should they run to another extreme and open the doors wide for migrants, so that the citizens will have to defend their indigenous rights against undesirable invasion (Aleshkovski and Iontsev 2015). In conclusion it is necessary to note that we believe that in order to overcome the dual character of migration policy and to benefit and use opportunities provided by safe, orderly and regular international migration as a resource of development one should apply a strategically adjusted approach to international migration management.

International Migration Policies: Government Views and Priorities 2013. Many people think globalization still favors the rich and it’s a detriment to countries Whatever the routes and means migrants use to enter a destination country and whatever measures are taken to prevent this flow, we think that it is hardly possible to effectively counteract irregular immigration under the existing predomination of capitalistic norms when in receiving countries the employers benefit from the cheap and rightless labor of irregular migrants, so that illegal migrants become ‘pure taxpayers’ beneficial for employers and receiving state. Within the framework of this prevailing immigration policy the governments are interested to learn, who the arriving migrants are: the nationality, profession, qualification, age, family status, etc. Currently, international migrants make up nearly one of every 32 people in the world, almost one of every eight people in the developed regions and nearly one of every 65 people in developing regions. Remittances are the immediate and tangible benefit of international labor migration. A., and Iontsev, V. A. It is traditionally considered that males constitute the major part of international migrants. In terms of global economic globalization the most important issue consists in the formation of the global labor market which operates via export and import of labor resources and has developed to an unprecedented scale. Migration today serves as an instrument to adjust the skills, age and sectoral composition of national and regional labour markets. Globalization depends on three keys of advancement, the role of human migration, international trade and rapid movements of capital. At the onset of the 21st century, nearly 200 million people, about 3 percent of the global population, were international migrants. In its turn, the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families was adopted in 1990, came into force only in 2003, and has been ratified so far only in 24 per cent of countries (UN 2015a; ILO 2015b).
