Migration Trends and Families

Sharing core norms and values
Posted May 30, 2022 | UN DESA Policy Brief, Renata Kaczmarska, Masumi Ono

Since families socialize and provide economically and emotionally for the next generation, they should be seen as essential for migrants’ integration into new societies argue Renata Kaczmarska and Masumi Ono in this UN DESA Policy Brief. Migration policies and programmes should reflect the reality that migration is not an individual phenomenon. Family migration is a driver of overall migration and family needs should be recognized by policymakers. When migrating individually, migrants are still part of families, and their migration decisions are motivated by the desire to improve the wellbeing of other family members, especially their children. Rather than being perceived as victims they should be seen as capable and active agents, eager to become productive and economically independent citizens.
