What is the significance of observing International Migrants Day 2020?

Migration, on most of the occasions, is not a choice. It is often due to the ill-treatment, socio-economic issues, geo-political differences, etc. that makes one migrate from his native place to another. There are over 250+ million people who are living across the globe and dwelling as migrants.

As per the UN’s official website, the message that the observance of International Migrants Day wants to convey is, “We learn together, create together, work together, sing, dance and play together. We live together.” With the official theme set to be #WeTogether this year, we hope we become the building blocks of the future social harmony, where people co-exist in peace and equality.
