Current world liberal economies are globalised and hence founded, theoretically at least, on the free movement of goods, capital, services and labour. Yet, market forces (the opening of borders) tend to work in the opposite direction to that of socio-political planning and control-related forces (selective closure of borders), while diverging interests also mark bilateral relations between sending and receiving states. The present paper argues for taking migration as part of the global social development process and for situating migration-related cooperation between countries at a structural, bilateral or even multilateral relations’ level.
