International Migration is a refereed journal whose contents explore current issues of migration and its effects on societies that are of interest to policy makers in government, international organizations, and civil society. The research and analyses we present are by demographers, economists, sociologists, political scientists, and other social scientists from around the world. Ours is a global journal. We aim for the highest standards of scholarship and credibility and, thereby, hope to enhance the national, regional, and global discussions of international migration and its impacts on those who migrate, the societies that receive them, and the societies from which they come. While recognizing the inherent value of an understanding grounded in history, International Migration emphasizes up-to-date and forward looking accounts that will stimulate further research into current and emerging trends associated with migration and its effects, drawing attention to issues requiring responsible consideration by policy officials and other decision-makers.

The journal is published for the International Organization for Migration which was established in 1951. IOM is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. As an intergovernmental body, IOM acts with its partners in the international community to: assist in meeting the operational challenges of migration; advance understanding of migration issues; encourage social and economic development through migration; and work towards effective respect of the human dignity and well-being of migrants.
