Institut für Entwicklung und Frieden: Mobility of Labour versus Capital – Governance Perspective (Global Trends Analysis 01/2019)

The mobility of people can engender positive effects for global economic development. Yet, migration has not been backed by an internationally-endorsed governance architecture as was the case with the liberalisation of international trade or finance. The challenge lies in advancing the development promise of international migration and reconciling it with the integrity of national sovereignty without compromising human rights.

In the latest issue of GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS Stuart Rosewarne and Nicola Piper characterise this challenge as the securitisation-liberalisation paradox wich also reveals itself in the UN’s Global Compacts on Refugees and Migration. The authors advocate a broader focus on migration, including a better understanding of its various forms, and a rights-based approach in migration governance.
