In particular, migration management serves the broader purpose of a business-friendly competition state agenda to broaden and deregulate access to “useful” human resources. Welfare state reforms aiming at the embrace of more punitive “workfarist” policies have not always increased the available pool of low-skill workers and migrants have also been recruited to be channeled into such low-skill and low-wage segments of the labor market. The often invoked term of securitization is 23 Legacies of the Past and Currents of Change conceived too narrowly and may well be stretched, notably by organized business and employers, to encompass the rhetorical emphasis on liberalized access to human resources as being of crucial import to the economic prosperity and security of a given polity.

Therefore, broader trends of economic transnationalization, globalization of production strategies, and the increasingly apparent divergences between different European models of capitalism all shape migration management and labor recruitment strategies. Changes within the systems of politico-economic governance have led to the reconsideration of migration management policies and the rediscovery of labor migration in particular.

According to this ideology, states are gatekeepers over national arenas engaged in all-out global competition for investment and are favorably inclined towards the demands of business for favorable investment conditions, consisting ideally of a docile low-wage labor force, a low taxation regime, and permissive standards in labor market, social, and environmental policy.
