Abstract

I posit that the deployment of a vulnerability analysis premised on an universalistic idea of citizenship in international human rights adjudication is critical to good global international migration governance. I contend that the intrinsic human nature of the global phenomenon that is international migration calls for a human rights-based approach to governance. I identify international human rights adjudication as a core migration governance activity and argue that a vulnerability analysis enables regional human rights adjudicating bodies to advance good governance by extending protections to all migrants and producing narratives that help elucidate the dynamics of international migration.
