ABSTRACT
The main purpose of the paper is to demonstrate, on the example of three instruments (labour market test, points-based system and quota), the process taking currently place globally, which consists in the convergence of immigration policies pursued by the immigrant-receiving states. The paper presents theoretical achievements related to immigration policy and the theory of immigration policies convergence. Moreover it discusses in detail selected instruments in terms of their effectiveness and the impact of the said convergence on universal nature of their application. The paper also puts forward a proposal for a new typology of immigration policy instruments.
