According to surveys conducted by Gallup, 750 million people would migrate to another country if they could. This talk explores how migration on this scale is impossible under existing laws and international agreements. Discussions about new political arrangements that could accommodate this many migrants typically presume that they will support (i) Large Scale Immigration, (ii) Equal Treatment under the Law, and (iii) Local Political Control. Unfortunately, this violates the Constitutional Trilemma: Only two out of these three are possible. This talk offers a feasible approach to this global predicament.
