This report analyses recent trends in migration movements and policies in OECD countries as well as in selected non-member countries. It includes a detailed description of the flows and channels of immigration and the nationalities of the migrants concerned. It highlights the contribution of immigration to increases in the total population and the labour force and describes the changes that have taken place in the sectoral distribution of foreign workers. It also underlines the growth of employment-based migration and the measures implemented by some OECD countries to facilitate the recruitment of skilled and highly skilled foreign workers.

The report notes that the control of flows remains a high priority on the agenda of migration policies, as does the extension of co-operation with countries of origin. Particular attention is given to the integration of immigrants, and notably of youth, into the labour market and society as a whole.

In addition to this overall analysis, the reader will also find in this publication:
- Two sections on migration in East and South-East Asia, and recent developments in migration movements in and from Central and Eastern European countries.
- A special chapter devoted to a comparative analysis of recent studies of labour shortages and the needs for immigrants in OECD countries.
- Country notes describing in detail recent developments in migration flows and policies.
- A statistical annex containing the most recent available data on foreign and immigrant populations, foreign workers, migration flows and naturalisations.
