While the world economy continues to become more global, international labor mobility remains severely restricted for all but those with rare or high skills. Many people in developing countries would like to emigrate legally to work abroad but they do not qualify for admission to destination countries. This is because policy-makers typically focus on the net national economic impact when considering reforms of their labor migration policies and they naturally respond to public opinion about that impact.

Establish certification of recruiting agencies to weed out lawless and unethical recruiting agencies.

Recruiting agencies are key players in moving brains and muscles around the globe. Yet, many such agencies do not follow the rule of law and many of them foster exploitation and human trafficking. A method needs to be developed to certify recruiting agencies and to put those who do not follow the rule of law out of business. An estimated 40% of trafficking into forced labor is done by recruitment agencies.
