International Organizations as Global Migration Governors: The World Bank in Central Asia

Abstract

Global Governance 23 (2017), 403–421 International Organizations as Global Migration Governors: The World Bank in Central Asia Oleg Korneev Numerous international organizations play a key role in generating and sustaining migration governance across the world in the absence of a global migration regime. However, global governance scholarship lacks grounded understanding of their role, which is often rejected or simply left unnoticed. In rare cases when IOs do get academic attention, light is shed on two referent “migration” IOs—the International Organization for Migration and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees—while other IOs remain in their shadow. Drawing on the case of the post-Soviet Central Asia, which is characterized by both significant migration dynamics and multilayered governance but has so far escaped attention of migration governance scholars, this article takes two steps for establishing a new re- search agenda. First, it deploys and applies to IOs the concept of global mi- gration governors defined as authorities who exercise power across borders for the purpose of affecting migration policy. Second, it moves dis- cussion beyond the referent IOs and demonstrates the role of often over- looked nonreferent IOs, such as the World Bank, active in the field of migration governance.
