One of the many reasons for undocumented migration are the poorly-designed regulations for circulatory migration. The lack of flexibility in granting circular residence status forces many migrants, both unskilled and skilled, to remain in a country against their personal wishes. Twentieth-century nation-states were inert and liked stable populations, quotas and permanent residents. However, the modern twenty-first century state must learn to manage circulatory migration and toadapt policies to address the legal rights and the status of migrants in movement.
