International Migrants Day History
International Migrants Day serves to celebrate the movement of migrants and their contribution to world development. Globalization has made the world a much smaller place than it previously was. Humans have always migrated but now they do so much faster and much further, many of whom risk their lives trying to reach a safer land with more opportunities.
On 4 December 2000, the General Assembly of the United Nations appointed International Migrants Day, a day to be celebrated annually on December 18. December 18 marks the anniversary of the United Nations' adoption of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families. On this day, it is important to recognize and remember the humanity that connects us all as we have all moved from somewhere.
