Abstract

French Abstract: Bien que la migration soit fréquemment considérée comme relevant du domaine réservé des Etats, le mouvement de personnes est régi par un jeu complexe de normes internationales. Envisager la migration sous l'angle des principales sources du droit international permet de mieux rendre compte de la densité de la matière. Le présent chapitre examine à cet effet les différentes sources applicables (droit coutumier, droit des traités, principes généraux de droit) ainsi que le rôle de la soft law dans le domaine de la migration.

English Abstract: Although migration is frequently considered as a matter of domestic jurisdiction, the movement of persons has been internationalized by a complex set of norms. The main sources of international law reveal a relatively dense picture. This chapter reviews the sources of international legal norms that govern migration by examining treaty law, customary law and general principles of law. It concludes by assessing the role of soft law on the traditional sources of international migration law.
