Here is an abstract of my project:

This project aims to provide a qualitative understanding of the causes, means and effects of illegal labour migration through a pilot study in a high-rate Romanian sending region, and to integrate the findings in a set of informed policy recommendation at central and local level for a better management of illegal migration. Particularly, it aims to promote practical solutions for the decrease of people trafficking and smuggling phenomena.

Here are some key objectives that I hope to achieve:

  • To asses the successes and failures of central and local initiatives to control illegal migration;
  • To identify the  push and pull factors that contribute to illegal migration of Romanian workers, based on an in-depth case study;
  • To uncover the routes, structure, dynamics and methods of several illegal migration networks in order to inform prevention and awareness-raising efforts;
  • To formulate informed policy recommendations and to disseminate them to relevant stakeholders and environments in order to stimulate reflection, debate and public pressure on the illegal migration issues.
