Overview of the international migration flow in Iran and other countries
This report entitled “International Migration Flow” is results of the latest studies conducted by Iran Migration Observatory. By considering lacking of specialized studies and data about migration in Iran, this study aims to provide the most up-to-date international migration data, by focusing on “talents and international student mobility”. In this report we have investigated the impacts of economic changes on migration flows (out-flow and returning) in Iran.
The first part of this report refers to the Potential Net Migration Index (PNMI), which shows the attractiveness of countries to encourage their adults to stay or migrate based on Gallup surveys. In the second section, the status of Iran in attracting and retaining international talents has been explained and interpreted by using “GTCI”. Section three has focused on one of the most fascinating but neglected aspects of migration: “remittances”. In this section, we have studied about economic impacts of remittances on origin countries, especially in migrant sending countries. In the final section, we have addressed impacts of the latest economic changes in Iran on desire to migration among different social groups, especially students.
