    Policies on labour migration include measures of different types and pursue the realization of a number of objectives. In countries of destination, some policy measures are aimed at governing and managing flows with a view to adjusting the number and skill profiles of incoming migrant workers to the needs of labour markets. They may also be intended at facilitating or controlling the flows of family members reuniting with migrant workers already present in countries of destination. Policy measures may be meant to provoke flows in the opposite direction, in the sense of encouraging return migration to countries of origin.
