Models for Immigration Management Schemes
Over the past few decades, international migration has not only increased but is also flowing to and from an ever-larger number of countries. As the number of countries receiving economically motivated migration increases, they are developing a variety of strategies to deal with this challenge. Consideration of which legal instruments of migration management appear promising, in particular with regard to the recruitment of skilled migrants, is high on the political agenda.
