Against the presentation of an asymmetric global governance, this article
analyzes the formation of global migration governance with its focus on the
politics of migration and development. It traces the marginalization of a
rights-based approach to migration and the streamlining of migration
governance into business-friendly migration management and a geopolitical
securitization agenda. It also reviews the trajectory towards factoring
migration into a global development policy discourse as formulated in the
UN 2030 Development Agenda. Specifically, it indicates that the inclusion of
migration into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) may promote
migrant workers’ rights because several of these invoke universal human
rights instruments, social protection and the observance of the ILO decent
work agenda. However, this will only be possible if civil society critically
engages powerful state and non-state actors in the process of monitoring the
SDGs’ implementation, and resists their streamlining into investment and free
trade neoliberal development regimes.
