Today, the world of human mobility has perhaps become even more complex and affects everyone, migrants and indigenous peoples alike. Migration is an important component of the growing interdependence between nations.
It is also due to migration that there is growing awareness that we "are travelling in the same boat", that is to say, in one and the same world. Our destiny is ever more bound to everyone else's destinies.
