Multilateralism in Global Governance

Formal and Informal Institutions

Edited By Assel Tutumlu and Gaye Güngör

The aim of this edited volume is to bring back multilateralism in global governance research by going beyond the state-centric and formal models of multilateralism of the 1990s and deeper into the informal private agents and structures of global governance. The volume is situated within the third generation scholarly research tying together disparate efforts from various disciplines, such as International Relations, Public Administration, International Law and International Political Economy under the overarching theme of multilateralism approached from the three different angles: normative dimensions of global governance, issue-areas, such as migration and international trade, as well as the limits of multilateralism.

A Bio-political Governance: The European Union’s Policy on Irregular Transit Migration at the Borders2

Introduction

Along with economic interdependence and societal transnationalism that underline “human” dimension of globalization (Castles and Miller 2008), international migration has become gradually the subject of global governance.3 The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) states that in 2013, there were 232 million people, i.e. 3.2 per cent of the world’s population who lived outside their country of origin and categorized as “migrants” (UNFPA 2015). The growth and spread of this population has been fuelling states, international organisations and the other transnational governance networks as well as inter-agency mechanisms for cooperation for better regulation, management and control of international migration.
