Author: KILLIAS, Martin
Series/Report no.: EU-US Immigration Systems; 2011/19
Crime and migration has been a subject of debate over many decades. The present review of the literature attempts to synthesize the available evidence from statistics, crime victimization surveys, self-report surveys and other sources regarding offending and victimization rates among migrants and native populations, discriminatory decision-making by victims, police and criminal justice officials, attitudes to the police and explanations. The paper concludes that crime among migrants is a problem that policy-makers should not ignore. A number of policy changes are proposed.
