Abstract

Growing perceptions of international migration as a security issue have led to increasing criminalization of migration, not only in migrant receiving countries, but also in countries of transit and origin, where rejected and forcibly returned migrants risk becoming ‘illegal at home’. Post-deportation monitoring can help improve migrant security and hence migration and refugee policy.

Keywords: deportation, post-deportation risks, return monitoring, international migration
