In 2015, there were 244 million international immigrants – the highest number ever recorded and up 12 million from 2013.[i] The 2016 numbers will no doubt be higher. Many immigrants move to new countries in search of a better life. Some are escaping poverty, war, or famine; others are seeking an education; and some simply want to start anew. These immigrants often sign a social contract with their families to send back money – remittances – for support or to invest in local opportunities.
