Migration like any other process shapes many fields of life, having both advantages and disadvantages. Effects of migrations are:
  1. changes in population distribution
  2. demographic consequences: since migration is selective of particular age groups, migrants are mostly young and in productive age. It can cause a demographic crisis – population ageing, what in turn can be followed by economic problems (shrinking group of economically active population has to finance extending group of inactive population).
  3. economic results, which are of the greatest importance for the development of the countries.
  4. Migration has had a significant effect on world geography.
  5. It has contributed to the evolution and development of separate cultures.
  6. It has contributed to the diffusion of cultures by interchange and communication.
  7. It has contributed to the complex mix of people and cultures found in different regions of the world today
