Migrants make "positive" changes to their new homelands, including boosting the workforce, the UN's educational, scientific and cultural agency UNESCO has said.

Golda El-Khoury is UNESCO's Chief of Section for Social and Human Sciences Department.

Speaking at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, she said European countries with ageing populations, could benefit in particular from a surge in young immigrants.

May Yaacoub asked Ms El-Khoury how immigrants could integrate successfully into the new communities, during a time of global crisis.
