Two new special issues (SIs) on regional and global migration governance have been published and I had the opportunity to contribute articles to both of them. The first SI is dealing with multi-level “Migration Governance in an Era of Large Movements”, the second is called “The Social Governance of Transnational Migration: Perspectives from the Asia Pacific”. Also, I wrote a comment on the draft of the Global Compact for Migration. Find all the details here:
The SI on multi-level migration governance was guest edited by Marion Panizzon & Micheline van Riemsdijk for the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies. No issue number has been assigned yet, so the articles are “early view”. You can find the introductory chapter here:
Collen Thouez provides us with an insider perspective on “Strengthening migration governance: the UN as ‘wingman’”:
My own article is called “The Global Forum on Migration and Development as a venue of state socialisation: a stepping stone for multi-level migration governance?” and there is a limited number of free downloads available here:
Several more highly recommended contributions to the SI can be found on the early view page (where you will also find another very interesting upcoming SI on “Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals through the Gender, Migration and Development Nexus”):
The second SI was guest edited by Nicola Piper & Gaby Ramia and has just been published in Volume 59, Issue 1 of Asia Pacific Viewpoint:
My contribution is called “ASEAN Forum on Migrant Labour: A space for civil society in migration governance at the regional level?”
Finally, I have published a commentary on the draft of the Global Compact for Migration in the Germany journal on the United Nations, which appropriately called “Vereinte Nationen”.
The title of the op’ed is “Nur ein erster Schritt” – “A first step only“
