This paper is devoted to the international political and economic aspects of global migration. Contemporary international migration seems as a natural effect of the free trade policy. Being under the influence of the macroeconomic foundations, international migration couldn’t be explained only in terms of economic reasons. The regulation of the global migration is the question of both economic and politics at the same time. Obstacles to the formation of an international regime on migration looks in a clash of international actors interests, security problems, human rights, collective identity, based values of democracy and nation-state, which actually do political issues. The research presents a critical review of the main approaches existing in modern theories of international relations and international political economy in their relation to international migration.
