The internal migration theme refers to any migration that occurs within a country. This could refer to migration between administrative units of a country which can have similar consequences as international migration in terms of loss of rights, risks of travel and negative stereotyping. Internal migration is the type of migration most likely to be undertaken by the poorest and the numbers involved dwarf international migrants. It is estimated that the number of internal migrants in China alone equal that of all the international migrants in the world.
