Migration in the Human Rights Context


The phenomenon of migration concerns 3.3% of the general population living in the world and its number is still increasing. In order to stop migration measures
are taken, which are largely against human rights to migration. The right to migration itself is denied. The activities that aim to restrict the right and not to regulate it become an alarming tendency. As a category of mixed rights, whose title is in the human nature (dignity), measure is positive regulation of exercising these rights as its internal element.
