This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on labour migration policy in Spain and Great Britain. The comparison of these two European Union members highlighted the value of comparative research on labour migration policy. It was also observed that the contemporary governance of labour migration is becoming more technical and based on economic utilitarian arguments, and this has implications in terms of our understanding of the ways political questions around immigration are changing and the ways in which expertise can play a role in the policy-making process. This chapter also discusses the usefulness of the various theoretical frameworks and potential avenues for future research.
