ABSTRACT
The article addresses the issue of transnational private regulation (TPR) of migration and migrant work. It explores four questions on TPR such as whether migration is always transnational, private, and must be fused with market-driven regulations. The author explores her experience of Indigenous peoples and racialized migrants in Canada to highlight the importance of a TPR that would recognize the rights of migrants to live as legal and political subjects in their host countries.
