DATA STORY : International Migration And Diaspora
International migration has been historic in nature. The prime reason is economic and so, most migrants move from developing to developed countries in recent times. It is also evident from the fact that the USA is the top destination for migrants and India has the largest diaspora in the world. The diaspora is beneficial for the destination country as they receive workforce at affordable prices and source country benefits from remittances as well the soft power it gains from its diaspora. COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the flow of migrants as well as remittances as per recent report. The data used in the data story is largely taken from the report 'International Migration 2020 Highlights', by the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) and a report from the World Bank.
