During the past two decades, traditional development aid has become quite unfashionable or at least lost considerable ground in the debate on North-South relations due to end of the Cold War and the distrust towards interventions in the market mechanisms (see chapter 8). Instead, increasingly prominent issues were (among others) global governance, sustainable development and market liberalisation. The latest trend consists of promoting migration as an engine for development in the countries of origin. The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has summoned an initiative aiming at the improved coordination of the areas of migration and development policy. However, the rights of migrants are not on the centre stage in this initiative.
