ABSTRACT
Against the background of profound economic and political changesin East Asia, this paper examines key trends in migration within theregion. It highlights the increasingly multidirectional nature ofmigration flows, the importance of undocumented migration, and thegrowing significance of secondary diasporas and return migration.While future large-scale flows of migration are likely, the changingnature of regional migration makes it more difficult for existinginternational frameworks to respond adequately to these cross-borderflows. Against this background, the paper argues the need to developnew regional collaborative mechanisms, involving national and localgovernments as well as national and international NGOs, to respondto the challenges of East Asian migrations.
