Item description for Huddled Masses and Uncertain Shores:Insights into Irregular Migration (Refugees and Human Rights, V. 2) by Bimal Ghosh...
Irregular migration, including trafficking in migrants, has emerged as a major international challenge. It now represents one-quarter of the total yearly inflow in the United States and as much as one-half in Europe. At the global level some US$7 billion is channelled every year into human trafficking. Its close links with trafficking in arms and drugs, and with prostitution of women and child abuse, make it an increasingly alarming menace, undermining both social peace and international order. One of the most complete and penetrating treatments of the subject to date, this volume unveils the complexities of contemporary irregular migration and discerns its possible remedies. An incisive discussion on issues of definition is followed by a critical analysis of the causes and conditions of irregular migration and its social and economic effects in both sending and receiving countries. Its searching analysis of current national measures against irregular migration clarifies the reasons for their relative inadequacies. The bold conclusions are shaped into a coherent, comprehensive, and forward-looking strategy to combat irregular migration. The professional rigour and lucidity of the discussion make this timely book valuable to policy-makers, researchers and practitioners alike.
