International Migration and Development: Continuing the Dialogue: Legal and Policy Perspectives


Description : International migration has reached the top of the global political agenda. In addition to nations and regional groups, the larger international community is struggling with the question of how best to manage international migration, especially with regard to development and human rights. There is little agreement on what should be done or, indeed, whether this is even an appropriate topic for discussion and recommendations at the multilateral level. For instance, migration has not been on the agenda of the United Nations as a global intergovernmental conference in the same way as conferences on the environment, urbanization and women’s issues, among others.
