The article deals both with the international migration policy and the migration global governance. In the 21st century, the role of migration in the international political process is growing increasingly, the migration discourse is being seriously transformed, the migration situation in Northern and Western Europe changes completely. It is obvious that preventive measures are highly necessary to take. The experience of  Northern Europe seems to be highly important for both successful practices determination and migration policy regulation in Russia. By September 2015, the Member States of the United Nations will have negotiated a set of sustainable development goals (SDGs). These goals will frame a new international development agenda to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which expire at the end of 2015. Nowadays the International Organization for Migration is trying to integrate the migration subject into the international agenda, and there are three aspects highlighted: fostering partnerships on mobility and development; promotion and protection of migrants’ rights and wellbeing; reduction of human mobility costs. Today, Russia is active at migration global governance as well. It is visible that both the migration subject integration into the global agenda and the Millennium Development Goals revision are highly important for Russia’s authority strengthening on the international stage, in terms of present-day sanctions. This is the right way which reveals new possibilities for Russia as a global actor as well as new perspective for its influence on the international political process. The author also tries to interlink the migration process and the international political process, the international migration policy and the migration global governance. A new term of the international migration policy is introduced.
