Rethinking Irregular Migration
Causes, Course, Consequences and Corrective Measures
- Dans le texte
This book examines the causes of irregular migration, with particular focus on the mass movement of Gambian youth and youth from other parts of the world. These youth risk the journey across the dangerous desert to the Mediterranean Sea with the aim of rea ching the West. Investigation shows that poor economic and bad political situations in many developing countries, together with the uncontrollable unemployment rate among the youth combined with insecurity are the root causes. Conversely, the book proposes good governance characterised by equitable distribution of resources as the antidote to the prevalence of this mass movement.
