2011 World Bank International Essay Competition

 

Young people are on the move. Improvements in transportation, technology development and increased international trade, as well as issues such as unemployment, war, health and economic hardship have prompted more young people to migrate within and across national borders in search of work, education and a better quality of life. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) estimates that young people between 15 and 30 years of age account for about one-third of all migrants. The World Bank International Essay Competition 2011 would like to hear your views on the opportunities, challenges and implications of youth migration.
