This inquiry will treat restrictions on the desire to emigrate in a conceptual manner so as to provide criteria and procedures for decision-making. First, a framework will be constructed to assist decision-makers--be they heads of state, diplomats, legislators, bureaucrats, or simply citizens--in evaluating the competing claims involved when an individual seeks to exercise the right to emigrate. Then, an analysis of the emigration policies of Austria, India, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States will be presented as illustrative of the world community's approach toward emigration showing its general expectations about appropriate controls on emigration. Finally, the creation of international machinery will be proposed to implement the recommendations made.
