A new and entirely updated edition taking into account the prominence of this issue
in the news and the challenges to European open borders (the Schengen Agreement)
A major graphic recasting
This politically engaged atlas seeks to use maps and charts to bring out the inconsistencies
and global negative consequences of how the question of immigration is posed by the
European Union. The 2012 edition surveys the situation and analyses the most recent
events: the uptick in migration in the wake of the Arab Spring, the agreements between
Italy and Libya, reinforced border controls, the closing of detention camps, etc.
By Réseau MIGREUROP (a network of 39 groups,), edited by Olivier Clochard,
geography professor at the University of Paris-8, and, among others, K. Dorai, research
director at the CNRS/ADES Bordeaux III, and A. Pecoud, researcher at MIGRINTER
(Poitiers) and Unesco.
