Working paper

This paper explores the international literature and practice on what immigration policy consists of; how countries manage the entry of migrants and influence the volume of immigration; how countries manage the selection and influence the composition of migrants to meet their objectives; and how the settlement of migrants is managed.

In doing so, the paper looks at the comparative decision-making structures and governance arrangements surrounding immigration policy around the world.
