Migration is almost as old as humanity itself. And even though migration was what ultimately brought people out of Africa some more than 120,000 years ago and spreading them all over the world, it’s now seen with very sceptical eyes. To be fair, those times are mostly gone and people are more sedentary nowadays. Nevertheless, humanity has now reached a point where the transportation technology, geopolitics and the level of education have reached a point where migration in between countries is more prevalent than, let’s say, two hundred years ago.

And Europe is no different here. In fact, the European Union has opened the borders in between its member states so as to maximise the level of cohesion between the citizens. To that end, it is interesting to see and, basically, map out where people are predominantly moving towards and from what countries so as to better understand the dynamics of migration in Europe as a whole.

These maps here below do not only focus on migration in the countries part of the EU, but the whole of the European continent – how many people go where; from which country; how many migrants make a country’s population, or how many of them are living abroad.

Each country on this map has the name of the country where most of its citizens decided to migrate to.

Here we can see the percentage of the population of each given country that lives abroad.

On this one, it’s the exact opposite of the map above, showing the percentage of people who are from another country.

This map indicates the nationality of immigrants that has expanded the most in between 2010 and 1015. It is important to note here that these are not necessarily the most populous, but rather, the nationalities that saw the biggest increase in between those years. Also, the countries that appear blank indicate an overall decrease in immigration from other countries. Not a complete stop of immigration, but rather, no increase from previous years.

This last map shows a more detailed look at the exact numbers of immigrants in between the various countries.
