The authors examine migration as one of the urgent problems of the modern global world. The phenomenon of migration has been indispensable for human history, culture, and civilizations, the causes of which have always existed and still exist. All sorts of wars, confrontations/conflicts turn a group of society into refugees and push them to migrate from the source of conflict to neighboring or distant countries. Also, the underlying causes, such as social, political, economic, and other factors, which are inherent of the domestic and foreign policy of any country, are considered as an important aspect. The chapter also reviews the migration profile of Georgia and Ukraine. Particular attention is paid to migration as a result of conflicts/ethnic conflicts instigated by Russia, Russian occupation, as well as other migration inducing factors. It is concluded that the migration policy solves not only the problems of migration, but also the tasks of economic development, respect for human rights, etc.
