UN-Migration: the world's mobility inequalities are accentuated, warns IOM
by Paul Carrel
(Reuters) - migration between the richest countries have increased, while conflicts and climate change increased internal displacements in the most fragile states. It is difficult to flee, said Wednesday the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
out of the first 20 countries of origin of immigrants in 2020, 18 were among the most developed countries, compared with 7 in 1995, Marie McAuliffe said, head of the Research Division of the United Nations Agency for Migration and writer of the 2022 report on migration in the world.
Belarus says more than 100 refugees flown home
Minsk claims further repatriation flights will take place on Tuesday as the border crisis rumbles on.The group of 118 people left on Monday from the country’s national airport in the capital, Minsk, the head of the migration department at Belarus’s interior ministry, Alexei Begun, told state news agency BELTA on Tuesday.
At the same time, the number of internally displaced persons increased in 2020 to 55 million worldwide, compared with 51 million in 2019 - a vulnerability exacerbated by the Pandemic of Covid-19, which made more difficult migrations in other countries.
"We risk seeing a fracture of international mobility, with potential consequences for global inequalities," Marin McAuliffe reported journalists.
Schengen's free circulation space has opened migration opportunities to some 400 million relatively rich European citizens, allowing, for example, Portuguese citizens to live and work in Germany.
On the other hand, "international migration routes for millions of people in developing countries have narrowed again", according to IOM, depriving many people with better life opportunities offered by migration.
Saudi-led coalition to attack ‘secret drone laboratory’ in Sanaa
Coalition says it is launching fresh raids on the Houthi-held capital, warns residents to stay away from targeted areas.In a statement on Saudi state media, the coalition on Wednesday asked civilians not to gather around, or approach, targeted areas.
of the 55 million displaced persons within their own country in 2020, 48 million fled conflict and violence and seven million were uprooted by disasters such as hurricanes and forest fires, often caused by climate change.
Marie McAuliffe recalled the example of Afghan citizens who do not have access to passports, as well as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroon, where heavy rains and floods resulted in some 279,000 and 116,000 new trips respectively.
"While COVID-19 nailed several million people around the world, the total number of the global displaced population has actually increased and new internal trips have also progressed," she added.
