The picture of migration, in EUROPE and worldwide, is vastly more complicated than at first glance. Modern technology, economic and ecological factors, and ease of movement promise greater complexity in the future. While much of the focus is given to the influx of immigrants into the richer European countries from Africa and Middle East nations the true picture of migration shows a dense plot of movement: migrants moving back and forth between their home country and their adopted country; agricultural workers moving within one country, sometimes several times a year to follow the seasonal changes in work opportunities; new immigrants who are willing and able to keep pressing on to new locations in search of better opportunity or more stable conditions elsewhere.
This complex picture of modern human migration is a result of improved transportation and communication, increasing social inequality, a changing climate, a growing world economy, and greater ease of movement across the globe. Rapid dissemination of information, updating far-off communities on the opportunities of a different community, has favourite population movement further.
The changes and increases in migration patterns, the arrival of migrants into new communities, and the participation in new and often dangerous forms of employment have therefore strong effects on the health, health risks, and health management of mobile populations.
