In international relations, migration diplomacy is 'the use of diplomatic tools, processes, and procedures to manage cross-border population mobility, including 'both the strategic use of migration flows as a means to obtain other aims, and the use of diplomatic methods to achieve goals related to migration.
Migration has come to constitute an increasingly-important area of states' engagement with one another, with bilateral multilateral strategies including the promotion or discouragement of bilateral migratory flows; agreements on preferential treatment to certain foreign nationals; the initiation of guest-worker programmes or other short-term labor migration schemes; the deportation of foreign nationals; and so on.
We work with disadvantaged and vulnerable groups to help them achieve their political goals through public diplomacy.
