Human migration refers to the movement of people from one area to another. Human migration can occur nationally or internationally, can be voluntary or involuntary, in small or large numbers and has many different definitions and connotations, none of which has been chosen as a universally accepted definition by the International Organization for Migration. The oldest form of migration recorded is nomadic migration, although few nomadic people have retained this form of lifestyle in modern times. Nowadays many people migrate to find better opportunities in more developed countries or for political reasons, in this case becoming refugees.
