People Movements and the 'National Interest'

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In this chapter, the elusive nature of the ‘national interest’ is pursued and identified. The question of cross-border people movements is then put to the ‘national interest’ test. How do the global movements of people for purposes of migration match up with national criteria for the public interest? What is the relation to actual policies adopted in this area?
