(p.22) Chapter 2 The Drive for Securitized Temporariness
Circular Migration between Europe and its Neighbourhood

Jean-Pierre Cassarino

Oxford University Press

Never before has the term ‘circular migration’ been used and mentioned by so many diverse actors ranging from scholars, think tank experts, policy makers, migration stakeholders, and officials from the European Union (EU), the United Nations and the World Bank. This chapter contextualises the introduction of EU-sponsored circular migration programmes while explaining that something anchored in the past may account for policy-makers’ current focus on temporary and circular migration. In other words, this chapter shows that circular migration programmes do not only build upon past practices designed to regulate the movement of international migrants (e.g., with temporary labour migrant schemes); they also react against such inherited practices in a subtle manner by linking the adoption of temporary and circular migration programmes with new security-driven safeguards. This unquestioned though questionable linkage is reflective of the consolidation of powerful drivers and predominant schemes of understanding that today structure migration talks and orient policy options as applied to the management of international migration.
