Abstract: One of the major recent changes in contemporary international affairs is the increase in the scope and intensity of social and economic relations, or the development of what has commonly been termed globalization. There is little doubt that various elements of globalization have served to facilitate the volume and diversity of international migration flows. The motivation for this paper is that international migration has received relatively little attention in the present debate on globalization. People have always left their homes in search of better economic opportunities, both within and outside of their own homeland. But economic globalization has put a new spin on global migration, causing global uprootedness and human displacement on an unprecedented scale. Because economic globalization exacerbates the inequalities between nations, migration for many becomes not a choice, but an economic necessity. The purpose of the present study is to analyse the characteristics of migratory movement in the era of globalization and to support the thesis about an unavoidable increase of migration in the next years. The paper is structured as follows. The first section reviews the process of globalization and the second presents the main theories of migration. The third section gives an overview of the influence of the human capital on the economic development. The next section highlights the effects of migration flows. Discussions concerning migration of people from one country to another usually concentrate around the influence of migration on highly developed countries. This part of the paper highlights issues associated with evaluation of the influence of emigration on developing countries. The next sections highlight important findings and offers concluding remarks.
