Readers' Guide Comment on “replication of model national labor migration policies”

Model national migration programs are designed to keep un- and under-employed workers in their own countries. At the moment, there is widespread acceptance for the principles of free movement of capital and trade. What is particularly needed is an analogous agreement on international free movement of labor. As with other GRI recommendations for greater effectiveness in governance, this recommendation does not explain what innovative policy role multinational corporations and/or civil society could have, were they to be key public agents managing out-migration.
