Immigration Law: Jurisdictional Comparisons
Devine, L
European Lawyer Ltd

One of the major paradoxes of the 21st century is that governments both seek to facilitate globalisation through the desire for foreign direct investment and the need for inward migration of talented workers; while at the same time placing legal restrictions on ‘free movement’ in an attempt to control economic migration, international finance, organised crime and terrorism.  The balance that governments and law makers seek to achieve has significant and sensitive political economic and social implications.
