Migration is one of the politically sensitive issues of our times. This notwithstanding, migration will likely be the dominant mode of globalization in the future. In fact, economic migration needs to be recognized as a global public good. Declining fertility and ageing societies have meant serious demographic deficits. The world will have to learn to cope with growing trans-nationalism and the rise of the global citizen with a global culture. The imperatives include significant economic gains resulting from liberalization of international migration. There is no other more effective solution to combating poverty and reducing global inequality. Across major economies significant skill gaps are jeopardizing growth—there is evidence of mismatch between the supply of and demand for skills across a wide gamut of sectors. Excessive segmentation in labour mobility that resists and restricts the movement of low skilled migrants is both short-sighted and counter-productive.

Keywords:   fertility, transnationalism, global citizen, liberalization, supply, demand, low skilled, high skilled, segmentation, labour mobility
