According to the United Nations, in 2020, international migrants made up 3.6% of the world’s population. The cause of this startling statistic can be attributed to a number of factors, however, the main reasons are thought to be the ‘increased magnitude and frequency of disasters, economic challenges, and extreme poverty or conflict’. This adversity then leads migrants into making the life-changing decision to move countries, often along with their families.
