Managing migration has become an increasingly central aspect of international politics since the end of the Cold War. Along transit routes, trade and economic production have become dependent on easy access to inexpensive migrant labour. The influence of diasporas linking the politics of countries of settlement with the politics of countries of origin creates additional pressures for powerful states to remain a primary security actor across border regions. This chapter explores how surges in population movement are accelerating a securitisation of border control that is blurring the divide between foreign and domestic policy on a global scale.
