This chapter charts the trajectory of crimmigration practices in five key sections. The first section provides an overview of the global phenomenon of irregular migration, illustrating the challenges of defining and statistically accounting for irregular migration (Andreas and Greenhill 2010), and exploring Koser’s (2010) framework for understanding irregular migration trends at the micro and macro levels.
