ABSTRACT

Bringing together migration scholars from five countries and three continents, this book has examined the history of and scope for international cooperation. It thus has both theoretical and historical dimensions. The latter examines real-world cases of international cooperation, while the former uses them, as well as the theoretical literature on international cooperation, to draw out broader conclusions on the conditions under which international cooperation can occur. Simply put, the volume has asked three questions:

What forms of international cooperation over migration have developed?

Why have states entered into them?

What scope is there for more developed international cooperation?
