UN World Youth Report


Why a report ?

While considerable attention is given to the issue of migration and its potential economic and social impacts on origin, transit and destination countries, to date very little attention has been given to understanding the livelihood struggles and opportunities that migration presents for young migrants themselves. Young people and youth-led organizations working on migration issues have on various occasions requested a UN study on the situation of youth migration.

The 2013 World Youth Report (WYR) will attempt to offer a multidimensional account or perspective of the life experiences of the young migrants and young people affected by migration. The Report aims to highlight some of the concerns, challenges and successes experienced by young migrants and other young people affected by migration (i.e. including sons and daughters of migrants (second generation), young people left behind by migrant parents in countries of origin, return migrants,etc.), from their own perspectives, based on their own experience, and in their own voice.
