Abstract

The rise in scope and significance of international migration is currently one of the greatest issues in many developed countries, where immigrants have moved to find better employment opportunities, improved living standards, and safer political conditions. The increased numbers of immigrants across the globe has led to heated debates about assimilation and public discussion on immigration. Therefore, international migration substantially affects both sending and receiving societies, and is followed by unprecedented social and economic challenges.
