This  publication analyses recent development in migration movements and policies in OECD countries and some non-member countries including migration of highly qualified and low qualified workers, temporary and permanent, as well as students. Three special chapters cover: the 50th anniversary of the OECD and the work of the SOPEMI, migrant entrepreneurship, and migration to Israel.

Total inflows to the United Kingdom in 2009 were 528 000, a slight decrease with respect to 2008. As outflows from the United Kingdom decreased substantially (from 409 000 to 337 000), total net migration rose by almost 50%, to 191 000, which is nevertheless still lower than pre-crisis levels. Most of the change in net migration is explained by the increase in inflows and decrease in outflows of British citizens.
