Why has a regional consultative approach to migration management emerged?

The emergence of regional consultative processes over the last ten years can perhaps be best understood as a regional-level response to changes in international migration trends and a growing recognition that the current international migration system, which was developed in another era with other determinants, focal points and a completely different balance of power, is no longer appropriate. The international migration system was in place K the early 1950s, when world population was less than lea If that today. At that time, development contrasts between the northern and southern hemispheres were not as stark as they are today, when colonies had not yet become independent and when fully a third of the world’s population lived in an environment of restricted emigration, namely, in a Communist state (Widgren, 1994:2).
