Migration has been largely neglected in the study of international relations. However, complex changes involving the formation of transnational communities and the relativization of borders, and the challenges posed by ensuring security, furthering development, and establishing good governance require a fresh look into the issue. Thispaper only indicates some directions, considering the Asian region as the context. First, migration is considered an issue affecting international relations because of security concerns. Second, the impact of migration on international relations is approached fromthe role of migration in economic relations. Finally, the link between governance and migration as well as international aspects in the management of migration are examined.
