This chapter focuses on measures that labor-sending and labor-receiving countries can adopt cooperatively to make international migration a sustainable exchange. Sustainability requires benefits to all parties concerned, from migrants and employers to labor-sending and labor-receiving countries, and also has the broader goal of promoting respect for the human rights of migrants. Many of the root causes of emigration lie within the developing countries, but the trade, investment, and other economic policies of the industrial nations can increase or decrease emigration pressures. The chapter discusses how the major challenge is to ensure that migration from developing to developed nations is self-stopping, which means that migration must contribute to stay-at-home development in labor-sending countries. Finding a sustainable framework to promote economic convergence is likely to arise in a bottom-up fashion as best practices are extracted from bilateral and regional migration agreements.

Keywords:   labor-receiving countries, international migration, migrants, developing countries, industrial nations, economic convergence
