Regional synergies of migration, human rights, trade, investment and knowledge transfer to maximize development in countries of origin of the migrants

In the course of the 21st century, globalization and increased interdependence especially between the fields of trade, migration and investment but also development and education has more than ever challenged the capacity of states to autonomously manage such flows, thus giving rise to regionalism and eventually to multilateral solutions.

The aim of this paper is to explore how to raise the synergies of migration, human rights, trade, investment and knowledge transfer to maximize development in countries of origin of the migrants.

To reach a deeper understanding of the inter-governmental coherence this paper will additionally examine the level of coherence between free trade and related agreements (such as Regional trade agreement) and Migration agreements as well as certain migration partnership agreements in certain regions:

1.in the context of the EU between Spain and France as well as Switzerland with certain African countries and;

2. in the context of NAFTA (Mexico –USA/Canada).
