Innovation
What is your signature innovation, your new idea, in one sentence?

Prepare the legislation promoting decrease of labor migration.

Describe your innovation. What makes your idea unique and different than others doing work in the field?

Currently, many people from poor countries that are looking for improving their financial condition massively immigrate to rich countries, mainly to North America and Europe. Accordingly, people of those rich countries react negatively to it, since it is impossible to accept and to accommodate so big population of all poor countries. As a result, antimmigrational mood is increasing. Consequently, it brings more and more nationalists to the authority. The same time, it contradicts to the existed international justice of migration. And very often, labor migrants especially illegal one become slavers. Majority of the cases are illegal. Rich countries fight formally with slavery and in fact their aids go to the same corrupted governments which are the distributors of the aid.
