Migration Attractiveness Index 2017, Kamil Matuszczyk

Mobility of the population is one of the most important social trends in the world. The prospect of a better job, better living conditions and personal development are the principal motives that cause people to emigrate. Economic migration is on the one hand an opportunity, but on the other a challenge for modern states as well, because developed countries need “new” workers in order to maintain a competition advantage in the global world or in order to ensure stability of the pension system. At the same time, the question of how to successfully integrate foreigners into the host country is still unresolved, and thus the question of migration will continue to be a subject of social and political debate.
