Migrant Smug­gling Data and Research: A glob­al review of the emerg­ing evi­dence base (Vol­ume 2) presents a unique review of what is being col­lect­ed and what can be done to fur­ther build the evi­dence base on migrant smug­gling glob­al­ly. The sec­ond vol­ume on the top­ic, and build­ing on the 2016 report, Vol­ume 2 is again the result of a col­lab­o­ra­tion between the Inter­na­tion­al Orga­ni­za­tion for Migra­tion and researchers from a range of back­grounds and aca­d­e­m­ic dis­ci­plines, and sup­port­ed by the Gov­ern­ment of Turkey.

The report shows that impor­tant research has been under­tak­en on the transna­tion­al crime aspects of migrant smug­gling, includ­ing on routes, smug­gling orga­ni­za­tion (such as crim­i­nal net­work­ing and facil­i­ta­tion), smug­gler pro­files and fees/payment. Like­wise, there is an emerg­ing aca­d­e­m­ic lit­er­a­ture on migrant smug­gling, par­tic­u­lar­ly the eco­nom­ic and social process­es involved in smug­gling, which has large­ly been based on small-scale qual­i­ta­tive research, most­ly under­tak­en by ear­ly-career researchers. Con­tri­bu­tions from pri­vate research com­pa­nies, as well as inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ists, have pro­vid­ed use­ful insights in some regions, help­ing to shed light on smug­gling prac­tices. The report con­firms key find­ings of Vol­ume 1, mak­ing rec­om­men­da­tions in three pri­or­i­ty areas:

  1. Strength­en­ing research and analy­sis partnerships;
  2. Sup­port­ing capac­i­ty-build­ing; and
  3. Focus­ing on emerg­ing and pri­or­i­ty topics.
