THE SIGNIFICANCE OF MIPEX INDIA
India is a unique country for migrants, worldwide. Not only is it the source of the highest number of international migrants (17 million as per the World Migration Report, 2020), it is also a prominent destination country for immigrants, particularly from Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, and Pakistan. While mobility agreements with Nepal exist, a majority of immigrants are vulnerable and require equal access to social and economic infrastructure. Given the importance of India as a destination country, it is important to assess the nature of integration policy for immigrants in India.
