Summary/Abstract: The significant and complex effects of international migration have been recently become an interest to international relations. However, despite that the long story of mass migration, empirical research seems to be lagging behind, particularly studies that question how mass migration have been used as a tool for foreign policy. In addition, how foreign and asylum policy intertwine in case of mass migration appears as less researched. In the light of the most recent developments that started with the Arab Spring, the relationship between foreign and asylum policy, in particular mass migration has gained attention in the field of international relations with its significant consequences not only for these policy areas but also domestic and humanitarian aspects. Despite its importance, the nexus between foreign and immigration policy has rarely been examined except studies addressing the external dimension of the European Union’s (EU) action on migration and asylum and the policies of the United States (US).
