Abstract

Over the last two decades, the volume of academic publications and news articles on migrations around the world has been remarkable. The acceleration of human mobilities is inherent to the current stage of the globalization process. In academic and political spheres, the topic has been the focus of numerous seminars and debates on the impacts, effects and consequences accompanying these international processes of accelerated migrations.
