The article deals with international migration. Two basic topics from this broad theme are examined: 1) The key determinants of international migration movements and other factors and barriers which influence the character of such processes; 2) positive and negative aspects which are at any time typical of emigration and/or immigration societies. The analysis is largely based on rich sources of literature. Though being generally oriented, it puts a bit more stress on the European reality.
