Abstract

The focus of this paper is to compare present migration situation, history, economy and
migration regulation in an European Union country (Finland), and, an EU accessing
country (Hungary) and a major non - EU country (Russia). Our material and methods
base on literature survey, policy analysis and analysis of the existing statistics and
legislation. The results show that even in the era of globalisation that is often claimed
to erode states regulatory power over the ? ows of capital and people, some regulatory
power still exists. Instead of developing their policies in accordance with the largely
self-regulating migration process, according to our data, the countries sought to regain
political control through reproducing economic, ethnic and national hierarchies.
