In today’s world, international migration is one of the key public policy areas with repercussions for international relations and diplomacy. In fact, the movement of people has proven to continue to be a significant topic of discussion, as it has direct implications on borders that nation-states try to maintain, on the existing political and social institutions, as well as on the receiving and home societies.1 Various kinds of political and social animosities, including xenophobia, Islamophobia, and racism are in ascendancy all around the world, creating problems for the maintenance of a healthy national and international order. Hardly any country or society seems totally immune from such tensions, since almost all countries in the world face the challenges of managing migration, border controls and integration of immigrants.
