Migration is a multifaceted phenomenon that requires policy approaches that go beyond the “one size fits all” perspective. This group focuses on investigating migration’s governance and its institutional and regulatory frameworks implemented at the local, national, and global levels. The aim is to analyze the processes carried out by civil society, inter-governmental, international institutions, States in order to identify and discuss their policy implications. For that, we are particularly interested in exploring the political instruments for mobility and migration regarding social integration and targeted actions for specific migrants’ groups such as high-skilled, asylum-seekers, students, and gendered-migration.

In addition, considering that border management is an essential topic for understanding the outcomes of migration policies, our research also focuses on the impact of migration control through borders regimes and possible tensions derived from the externalization of border control.
