(p.289) 18 Towards International Migration Governance? The European Contribution
The EU's Role in Global Governance

Daniel Thym

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the European Union's role in international migration governance. Europe's focus on international migration governance is no coincidence: primary law and European self-perception are biased in favour of international cooperation. An assessment of existing cooperation regimes, including the widely touted mobility partnerships, indicates that success is not a foregone conclusion. The objective of international migration governance is easy to declare, but difficult to achieve. Such practical trials and errors reflect underlying difficulties to accommodate countervailing migration control objectives, human rights standards, and legal migration opportunities. Legal, political, and conceptual reasons complicate the realization of international migration governance.
