New report by Franck Duvell and Bastian Vollmer (ESRC Centre on Migration, Policy and Society) on securitizing the EU borders and the irregularization of migration. The report provides an analysis of irregular migration flows and stocks, and EU policy responses.

Two more reports were published recently on irregular migration in Britain: IPPR’s controversial ‘No easy options‘ and  Migrants Resource Centre’s ‘Hope costs nothing‘. For a discussion on irregular migrant children and  the challanges to public policy see my recent paper on The Migration Observatory.
