This book aims to interrogate the human rights implications of migration control and migration status. Constructive human rights pluralism opens up greater space for contestation and inclusion. By examining four substantive flashpoints where EU and ECHR protections overlap, the book illustrates the dynamics in the field. Yet, human rights law is but one of the means of trying to realize the universal promise of human rights. Litigation may serve to catalyse political action, but disruptive and innovative methods of social action are needed if the full inclusivity of human rights is to be realized. Human rights universalism does not require open borders, but it does require that there are clear limits to what may be done in the name of migration control, and that the statuses accorded to migrants allow them to live full, dignified lives in the host countries.
