According to a report by the Global Commission on International Migration in 2005, the number of foreign nationals increased from 75 million to 200 million over the past 30 years and migrants could be found in all parts of the world. The report also found that migration could accelerate due to the increasing diversity of development, census and democracy that existed between the different regions of the world. In addition, migration is driven by the overwhelming economic, social and political forces that governments need to recognize as real.

On December 4, 2000, the UN General Assembly, looking at the growing number of migrants in the world, declared December 18 as the world’s largest immigrant. On that day, ten years earlier, the convention adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families. Previous celebrations of the day can be traced back to 1997 when some Asian organizations that came included December 18 as a day to honor the rights, protection and dignity of immigrants.
