The primary objective of this research project is to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the factors influencing irregular migration. By identifying and analyzing the root causes, we aim to develop a deeper understanding of the underlying socio-economic, political, and environmental factors driving people to undertake irregular migration. Additionally, we will explore potential solutions and interventions that can address these factors and promote safe and orderly migration.
- Literature Review: We will conduct an extensive review of existing academic literature, reports, and policy documents related to irregular migration, its causes, and potential solutions. This will serve as the foundation for our research, helping us identify knowledge gaps and areas requiring further investigation.
- Data Collection: We will gather primary data through qualitative and quantitative methods, including surveys, interviews, and focus group discussions. These data collection techniques will allow us to capture the experiences, perspectives, and motivations of migrants, local communities, and relevant stakeholders. We will also collaborate with governmental and non-governmental organizations working in the field of migration to obtain valuable insights and data.
- Data Analysis: The collected data will be analyzed using appropriate qualitative and quantitative research methods. We will employ thematic analysis to identify key themes and patterns within the data, enabling us to draw meaningful conclusions and make evidence-based recommendations.
- Policy Recommendations: Based on the findings of our research, we will develop a set of comprehensive and actionable policy recommendations. These recommendations will aim to address the root causes of irregular migration and propose interventions that promote regular and safe migration, protect the rights of migrants, and foster cooperation between countries of origin, transit, and destination.
- Research Report: A comprehensive report detailing the findings of the investigation, including an analysis of the factors influencing irregular migration and potential solutions. This report will be formatted for both digital and print distribution.
- Policy Recommendations: A set of evidence-based policy recommendations aimed at governments, international organizations, and relevant stakeholders. These recommendations will provide practical guidance for addressing the root causes of irregular migration and promoting safe and orderly migration pathways.
