This paper explores the compatibility of the principles of the universality and indivisibility of human rights with widely accepted and indeed almost axiomatic restrictions on international freedom of movement. Related to this question, but less a focus of this paper, is the question of access to citizenship, the nature of democracy and the relationship between freedom of movement and global development policy.
