Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (WoS Q1) has recently published a new article by Oleg Korneev, Academic supervisor of the MA programme “Comparative Politics of Eurasia”
The article “‘Home-grown’ vs. ‘imported’ regionalism? Overlapping dynamics of regional migration governance in post-Soviet Eurasia” (co-authored with Andrey Leonov, Lobachevsky University) explores intra-regional and externally-driven frameworks of regional migration governance in post-Soviet Eurasia.
Here is the article’s abstract:
This article examines intra-regional (‘home-grown’) and externally-driven (‘imported’) frameworks of regional migration governance in post-Soviet Eurasia. It argues that whether regional migration governance originates from internal or external sources makes an important difference. It shows that intra-regional migration governance develops around economic rationality, whereas externally-driven regional migration governance tends to prioritise linkages between migration and security and, albeit less systematically, issues of migrants’ rights. The article demonstrates how intra-regional migration governance started to emerge as part of regional integration processes, becoming institutionalised within organisations such as the Eurasian Economic Union. It also shows how alternative versions of regional migration governance have been promoted by international organisations via, in particular, Regional Consultative Processes. It concludes with a reflection on competition and complementarity between these partially overlapping regimes of regional migration governance in Eurasia.
