Presented as a "toolkit for policy makers and practitioners who face the challenge of improving the capacity of their country to manage migration," this three-volume manual from the International Organization for Migration presents migration management concepts and issues. Volume one begins with "foundations," providing chapters on a migration management conceptual model, migration and history, the authority and responsibility of states, the rights and obligations of migrants, international migration law, international cooperation, development of legislative and administrative responses, and perception management. The next volume presents chapters on key issues of migration management as they relate to migration and development, facilitating migration, regulating migration, and forced migration. These key issues include demography, trade, family, labor, health, security, displacement, and gender. The final volume shifts focus to operational activities and contains chapters on passport and visa systems, immigration systems, border management, international carrier responsibilities, refugee protection, integration of migrants, migration and citizenship, determination of migrant status and appeals systems, return migration, management of operational data, migration intelligence systems, and irregular migration. The set is published in wire comb binding. Distributed in the US by United Nations Publications.
