Shaping the European Migration Policy: the role of the security industry

Project description

How the security industry has impacted migration management

Immigration management today involves many actors. For instance, humanitarian groups and international organisations are operating closely with private security companies that are needed to supply technology, military equipment, hardware and intelligence services. The lines between internal and external security are blurring. In this context, the EU-funded MIGPSC project will investigate the role of private security companies and how the security industry has shaped EU migration management policy. The project will use process tracing methodology to observe the changing pathways of migration policy process. Looking back to the last 20 years of EU migration policy, the findings will shed light on when and why this change occurred.
