Research

What are the trajectories, infrastructures, and diplomacies that shape the EU’s governance of return migration? What are the effects and human rights costs of this return governance? In what ways does it affect so-called South-South return dynamics in the EU’s ‘neighborhood’? And how do migrants navigate and constitute such return migration governance? Horizon Europe project ‘Decentring the study of migrant returns and readmission policies in Europe and beyond’ (GAPs) addresses these and many other questions on return migration.
