The objectives of IJMRM are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex role of migration and residential mobility in modern society. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of resource allocation in the process of migration and residential mobility, bridging the divide between the two. Originality and representativeness are emphasised in order to meet the needs of accelerating social, scientific and technological change and changes in the global economy from the breakthrough point of migration and residential mobility.
