7    The potential of temporary migration programmes in future international
migration policy                                        Martin RUHS
This article explores the potential of temporary migration programmes (TMPs) for

diversity of their societies. In conclusion, he identifies the core considerations and pol-
icies needed to formulate and effectively implement TMPs.
