The article presents an analysis of the 2009 "Human Development Report" published by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), with emphasis on recommendations regarding international immigration made in the report. The report proposes that countries' existing restrictions on foreign entry be relaxed to allow for a greater influx of immigrants, that the basic rights of immigrants be guaranteed, and that the transaction costs associated with immigration be reduced.
