Regional Integration and labor Migration: Where To?

A recent piece in the Barbados Advocate carries an analysis about the issues of migrant workers, and the challenges encountered to adapt national policies by also taking into consideration the differentiation between economic migration, and the free-movement of skilled nationals.
In the example of the Barbadian case, it comes into views that the process behind regional integration and the CARICOM responses to these new demands have not fully weighed the dynamics between both home and host countries, and the need to draw upon the configuration of an integrated approach to labor migration.

This debate is very interesting by in fact providing and enlarging a focus about the distinctive problematic of labor migration, and the identification of regional demographic trends, where the role of governments is essential in the adaptation and adjustment of policy measures to mitigate the socio-economic impacts of migratory flows. It is true that migratory practices create new conceptualizations; nonetheless the establishment of regional integration is also paramount with increased development potentials for some national economies. This is a process that brings-in numerous inquiries to define the rules of the game if of course we weigh-in and reflect upon the realities associated with trans-national spaces, and the socio-economic impacts of such archetypes on different patterns in labor market structures, welfare systems, income generation and immigration laws.
