Global Migration Governance

This chapter examines the global governance of issue-areas affecting the underlying causes of movement notably in areas such as peace and security and global economic governance. It argues that an understanding of the international institutions that regulate the areas that underlie human mobility is crucial for understanding global migration governance. The chapter takes an international political economy approach, suggesting that the existing governance structures need to be seen in the context of North–South relations and that many of the inequalities that exist in forums such as the WTO and the Bretton Woods institutions themselves underpin the causes of human mobility.

Keywords:   root causes, migration and development, political economy, North–South, containment, migration management, global economic governance
