As will be documented below, IMN share these assumptions and, while they do not use the word ‘governance’, aim at proposing recommendations to remedy to this failure. In this view, ‘governance’ is something inherently good and useful that will enable states to find solutions to the problems they encounter. 0006 Global Migration Governance  We ... need global governance to face an array of new-generation challenges. There are now more than 200 million international migrants. The economic crisis has exacerbated their vulnerability.

This has prompted criticisms, regarding in particular the combination of security and economic considerations, which can be detrimental to migrants themselves. For example, Amnesty International writes that ‘if a regime of “migration management” is to be effective, not only must it be credible to states but it must also be credible to migrants. To achieve this, it must respect the fundamental human rights of migrants, and indeed must actively seek to respect, protect, and promote the rights of all migrants’ (2006: 25).

There are cases of slight divergences: as noted above, the topic of migrants’ rights, for example, is sometimes emphasised through a chapter of its own, and sometimes more briefly mentioned within the discussion of other topics.
