Global governance is essential in the current neo-liberal paradigm. This is especially true of migration. While economic migration ought to be determined by market forces it cannot be in a self-regulating market. The mandate on migration is currently fragmented across different institutions like the IOM, UNHCR, ILO, and so on. which deal with different types of migration and therefore different types of migrants. However, serious discussion on migration governance has not figured in the mainstream agenda in the UN system. There is a need for a body to govern migration. Currently, there is no global view on migration. The need for a multilateral framework for migration has been expressed but these have always been in the nature of ‘voluntary, non-binding bodies for the management of migration’. It is time for a global compact on international mobility of skills eventually leading up to a multilateral framework for the governance of economic migrants.
