This report analyzes recent trends in migration movements and policies in all OECD member countries and in selected non-member countries. It includes a detailed description of the flows, the different channels of immigration and the diversity of nationalities involved. The report also underscores the contribution of immigration to population and labor force growth and reports on the changes in the sectoral distribution of foreign workers. In addition, it reviews selection policies in relation to labor migration, especially those regarding skilled foreign workers, and examines limits to these policies. The report also presents measures aimed at improving the management of migration flows, recalling that cooperation with origin countries remains a priority for migration policies. Particular attention is given to the integration of immigrants, with a focus on policies that improve the knowledge of the host country's language, the recognition of migrants' diplomas and qualifications and access to vocational training for low-skilled migrants. The report also includes details about the ongoing process in developing common migration policies within Europe.
