IOM launches its flagship World Migration Report 2022
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) today, on 1 December, launched its flagship World Migration Report 2022 which reveals a dramatic increase in internal displacement due to disasters, conflict and violence at a time when global mobility ground to a halt due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
"We are witnessing a paradox not seen before in human history,” said IOM's Director General António Vitorino. “While billions of people have been effectively grounded by COVID-19, tens of millions of others have been displaced within their own countries.”
The report draws upon the latest data from around the world to explain key migration trends as well as issues that are emerging on the migration policy horizon.
