dc.description.abstractThis book focuses on irregular migration as a complex socio-economic process where states, actors and intermediaries interact with migration policies. Migration is not just about actually the policies of migration or the individual migrants but rather it is about both those who move and those how are sedentary as well as a whole series of actors and institutions that form the ‘industry’ of migration. This book concentrates on migrants themselves as main actors who based on specific structural conditions (their own economic, social and political resources) and in interaction with important intermediaries including employers, smugglers, NGOs, international organisations as well as national authorities and policies, make up their minds and engage into action. The research presented here examines how migrants learn about (changing) migration policies, how they take their decisions in each different stage of the migration route, how they execute their plans and in the end how they adopt specific strategies with a view to find a way to reach a desired destination. In other words, the book looks into how the migrants themselves make sense of their needs, wishes, and their migration experience, whether legal or irregular. The empirical research presented in this volume takes Greece as its case study, investigating five migrant populations who have a large irregular presence in the country notably Albanians, Georgians, Ukrainians, Afghans and Pakistanis. The reason for selecting people from these five countries is that they represent different migration systems and different migration pathways to Greece. The first chapter of the book engages into a critical literature review on the governance of irregular migration at times of globalisation, introducing then the case of Greece as a case of particular interest in terms of its migration and asylum experience. The five chapters that follow focus each on one group of migrants following closely their journey from the decision making to leave, to actually putting the plan into action, transiting other countries and then arriving in Greece and finding accommodation and employment. We investigate how they interact with policies and other actors/intermediaries and how they eventually organise their action. The seventh chapters offers a comparative analysis of the five cases.en
