    Abstract The question of human mobility, intrinsically a motor for all development and a basic, indeed vital, aspect of human existence, has long been relegated to blind spots, most especially where cross-border migration is concerned. Until very recently, it was also largely demarcated to the realms of national and, at best, regional, matters, rather than as an issue of shared international responsibility—an ill-thought but abiding bid perhaps, to contain, constrain, and control a global human phenomenon that might otherwise prove chaotic to the fundamental notions of sovereignty, borders, and citizenship that structure and to a great extent determine, the priorities of international relations.
