    Excerpt from the article by Puneet Kollipara:

    The United Nations University (UNU) has launched a collaborative research platform on human migration, an issue that it says is “a major phenomenon of the 21st century, with impact at local and global levels”.

    The UNU Migration Network is a response to what its coordinator, research fellow Valeria Bello, says is heightened awareness about migration at the United Nations.
