This chapter provides an overview the dynamics of international labour migration focusing on the complex relationship between the mobility of labour and capital and the role of the state and other actors in the management of migration. Migrant labour is paradigmatic of capital’s attempt to reduce workers to mere commodities. Migration programmes are, indeed, based on the assumption that immigrants are allowed in only as long as the availability of their labour responds to labour market needs. The final part of the chapter explores how organised labour may respond to the current composition of labour and mobility, scaling up spatial organising strategies to the same level where capital is organised.
