Most of the European Union’s attempts to control and restrict migration concentrate on the EU’s common external border and, in particular, on so-called ‘third states’ beyond this border. This chapter discusses the role of intergovernmental organizations (IGO) that have become important agents in the exterritorialization of EU migration politics. As an inquiry into the mechanisms and implications of IGO- and EU-driven mobility politics, the aim lies in contributing to the growing debate on the 'management' of human mobility and the role of international institutions.
