State regulation of labour migration is confronted with a double
paradox. First, while markets require a policy of open borders to
fulfill demands for migrant workers, the boundaries of citizenship
impose some degree of closure to the outside. Second, while the
exclusivity of citizenship requires closed membership, civil and
human rights undermine the state's capacity to exclude foreigners
once they are in the country. By considering how Malaysia and Spain
have responded to the demand for foreign labour, this book analyses
what may be identified as the trilemma between markets, citizenship
and rights. For though their markets are similar, the two countries
have different approaches to citizenship and rights. We must thus
ask: how do such divergences affect state responses to market
demands and how, in turn, do state regulations impact labour
migration flows? And what does this mean for contemporary migration
