The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011.

Many cons-truths on immigration are circulating in the French society. Immigration would thus be primarily the result of very poor people with no qualification and would have a negative impact on public accounts. Consequently, Western societies must “choose” their migrants and no longer underwent immigration and development assistance, particularly in the case of co-development would contain it. All these assertions are false and have been associated with the borders closure since 1970s. According to the authors, the reference to human rights is not sufficient anymore and the time has come to build an alternative immigration policy based on the freedom to cross the borders.
