OCTOBER, 18-20, 2017



Human migration is the consequence of human instinct that always seek comfort in his/her life, and tend to avoid the threat upon his/her family, in chich the threat caused either by natural factor or other human factor, including natural disaster, war, riots.

This large-scale population movement originally only a domestic problem of a country. Later, as population movements expand to one country boundary to another, the problem of population migration expanded to the issues of countries in a particular region and was considered to be a common problem of mankind.

On the basis of the background, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which consists of 30 articles, is the first declaration in human civilization that expressly the universal nature, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, state territory that all human beings have. Similarly, set forth in article 13 on freedom of movement and dwells every one within bounds of each country. This means that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes the right of human migration.

Influences of world development such as globalization and technological development also factors that cause population flows, and significantly show increases over time. The increasing flow of strangers to a recipient country will have a positive effect such as increasing the amount of money spent in the country, increasing investments and increasing trade activity leading to increased foreign exchange earnings. While the negative influence of it, one of which is the emergence of Transnational Organized Crime. The issue is ultimately an issue that cannot  avoid by Indonesian government. As a country that often transits for people or groups to seek protection and safety, Indonesia’s located in a strategic location, between two continents and two oceans that are the shortcuts of the international navigation path. So even though in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognized the right of human migration, that becomes another important issue is the sovereignty of a country that becomes a destination country or transit country for people who migrate.
