Migration is one of the most important forces affecting change in societies around the world. There are many different reasons for migration and these relate to movements that range from those that are voluntary through to those that result from circumstances beyond the control of migrants. Migration is often undertaken to increase the opportunities available to migrants in relation to education, employment or a better lifestyle in general.
