This chapter provides a summary overview of the chapters in the book, examining their collective contribution to understanding the institutions, politics, and normative dimensions of global migration governance. In doing so, it (a) develops a conceptual typology for explaining the variation in the type and degree of institutionalized cooperation that exists in different areas of migration, (b) identifies the main cooperation problems that exist in relation to different areas of international migration, (c) highlights the principal normative trade-offs that are inherent to global migration governance. It concludes by setting out alternative and competing visions for the future of global migration governance.
