Inequality between world citizens used to be determined in equal measures by class and location. New research, however, reveals that people’s fortunes are being dictated primarily by where they live. As a result, economic migration has become the key way for poor individuals from poor countries to improve their economic standing, and governments will not be able to alleviate the pressure of migration on their societies until global inequality is reduced.

In ‘Global Inequality: from class to location, from proletarians to migrants’, Branko Milanovic of the University of Maryland, examines the differences in income between countries and concludes that a key priority for policy makers should be aid and support for poorer countries.

“Not only is the overall inequality between world citizens greater in the early 21st century than it was more than a century and a half ago, but its composition has entirely changed; from being an inequality determined in equal measures by class and location, it has become preponderantly an inequality determined by location only” finds the report. “Analysis of incomes across countries for different members of the population reveals a wide gap between the poor in rich societies and the poor in less wealthy countries. This fact is of great political and economic significance. Individuals can now make large gains from migrating to wealthier countries.

Diaspora Consciousness

Diasporas – communities which live outside, but maintain links with, their homelands – are getting larger, thicker and stronger. They are the human face of globalization. Diaspora consciousness is on the rise: diasporans are becoming more interested in their origins, and organising themselves more effectively; homelands are revising their opinions of their diasporas as the stigma attached to emigration declines, and stepping up their engagement efforts; meanwhile, host countries are witnessing more assertive diasporic groups within their own national communities, worrying about fifth columns and foreign lobbies, and suffering outbreaks of ‘diaspora-phobia’.

This trend is the result of five factors, all of them connected with globalisation: the growth in international migration; the revolution in transport and communications technology, which is quickening the pace of diasporans’ interactions with their homelands; a reaction against global homogenised culture, which is leading people to rethink their identities; the end of the Cold War, which increased the salience of ethnicity and nationalism and created new space in which diasporas can operate; and policy changes by national governments on issues such as dual citizenship and multiculturalism, which are enabling people to lead transnational lives. Diasporas such as those attaching to China, India, Russia and Mexico are already big, but they will continue to grow; the migration flows which feed them are likely to widen and quicken in the future.

  • Nowadays, number of people are migrating to another countries to improve their economic conditions as well as living standards and Government can not force them to stay at their domestic country until inequality based on location and class of world’s citizens is not controlled.

  • Diasporas are getting more strong and interested in their homelands, connected with globalization, resulting in diasporaphobia in host countries, however migration feeds them to grow in the future.

  • There is a constant growth in the diaspora population globally due to the globalization factors such as booming migration rate, liberal international policies, tremendous improvement in communication and travel, and this makes the host countries suspicious about the foreign communities as a threat to their own survival.

  • In the contemporary world, the economic inequality among global citizens are predominantly decided by location rather than the measurement of both class and location, and this contributes to the skyrocketing rate of migration of less wealthy nationals to wealthier ones in search of their fortune, and this phenomenon can be regulated only if proper support is provided to them.

  • Due to global inequalities, economic migration has increased significantly which means poor individuals from poor countries and rich societies are migrating to wealthier countries to improve their economic standing; however, the study reveals that economic migration can be alleviated by reducing the global inequalities which can be done by providing aid and support for poorer countries.

    • Possible politically incorrect language

      poor countries → developing countries, emerging countries

      The term poor countries may be considered outdated, disrespectful, or offensive. Consider changing the word or phrase.

  • Globalization and other factors such as the growth in international migration, transportation and communication technologies, and the opportunities to have a dual citizenship promotes the growth of diasporas, which are becoming more stronger and confident, and it is expected that the following migration will make them even more thicker and stronger in the future.

  • The key priority for governments should be to consider inequality by class and location in order to reduce the number of migrants from poor to wealthier countries because they desire to improve their economic standing.
