Conference Migration & Societal Change 2023

Book launch: Research Handbook on Irregular Migration

22th-23 th, June, 2023   Academiegebouw, Domplein 29, Utrecht.

Roundtable discussion 3:

This roundtable celebrates the handbook on irregular migration that was published in March 2023 with Edward Elgar. Moving away from state categorizations on irregular migration, the handbook critically examines processes and dynamics that generate and reproduce irregularity and discusses who may count as an irregular migrant. Five contributors will present their chapter and there will be time to discuss the book.
