"THE MORE THINGS CHANGE, THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME." THIS OFTEN-used French proverb captures well how our world does migration policy today. Ours is an interconnected world, where "going it alone" is fast becoming the exception--the old way of doing business. Except for the migration world, that is. In this world, going it alone seems to be the golden rule. It is a world where national responses continue to trump globally shared ones. Yet there have been numerous reports and calls over the years urging us to alter our course: the Willy Brandt Commission (1980); the Commission on Global Governance (1993); the launch of the New International Regime for Orderly Movement of People (1997); the Berne Initiative (2001); the Commission on Human Security (2001); the Social Dimension of Globalization (2004); and the Global Commission on International Migration (2005). All of these reports included a convincing case for a more cooperative global approach to the management of international migration. To date, however, they all have had the same regrettable fate.
