From the document:

The 2013 World Youth Report offers a broad understanding of the situation of young migrants from the perspective of young migrants themselves. The report highlights some of the concerns, challenges and successes experienced by young migrants based on their own lives and told in their own voices.

Young people move within their home countries as internal migrants, or beyond their borders as international migrants. The report focuses largely on the phenomena of international migration which increasingly has a significant impact on the origin, transit and destination countries and communities.

The report is aimed at youth-led organizations and young migrants as well as policy-makers, academia and the general public. The report itself and each chapter individually is designed to facilitate further discussion on the topic, and for that reason, chapters may sometimes entail minimal repetition from previous chapters.
