States have long been wary of putting international migration on the global agenda. As an issue that defines sovereignty - that is, who enters and remains on a state's territory - international migration has called for protection of national prerogatives and unilateral actions. However, since the end of World War I, governments have sought ways to address various aspects of international migration in a collaborative manner. This book examines how these efforts to increase international cooperation have evolved from the early twentieth century to the present. The scope encompasses all of the components of international migration: labor migration, family reunification, refugees, human trafficking and smuggling, and newly emerging forms of displacement (including movements likely to result from global climate change). The final chapter assesses the progress (and lack thereof) in developing an international migration regime and makes recommendations towards strengthening international cooperation in this area.


'Drawing upon extensive policy experience and rigorous historical research, this excellent book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand or improve the global governance of migration.' Alexander Betts, University of Oxford 'Why do states find it so difficult to manage international migration in a collective manner? This fascinating book provides the answers.' Jeff Crisp, Refugees International 'This book is a tour de force. Professor Martin combines a mastery of the complex history of international migration and its management with an impressive, indeed encyclopedic, knowledge of contemporary migration and migration policy. International Migration is the definitive study of the topic.' Randall Hansen, University of Toronto 'Migration is the third pillar of globalization alongside trade and finance/money. Yet despite its importance for global welfare, migration has received short shrift from policy makers and scholars alike. Drawing on her vast experience as a policy analyst and her deep knowledge of the subject, Susan Martin gives us a brilliant overview of the thorny issue of global migration governance. Laying out the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead she explains why it is difficult for states to cooperate in managing migration.' James F. Hollifield, Southern Methodist University 'Drawing insights from participant observation and forgotten historical sources, Susan Martin provides fresh perspectives on the emergence and limitations of international cooperation on migration. This book not only furthers the debate among international relations scholars who analyze cooperation; it may help the policy makers who attempt to practice it.' Rey Koslowski, University at Albany, State University of New York 'More people are migrating to more places than ever before, making the management of international migration a major challenge of the twenty-first century. Susan Martin's tour de force analyzes the evolution of cooperation between nation-states to better manage migration and to protect migrants. International Migration offers a realistic assessment of cooperation today and lays out scenarios to increase such cooperation.' Philip Martin, University of California, Davis
