Abstract

This paper looks at the most prominent form of irregular migration: people smuggling. As the pressure to leave war-torn regions rises for more and more people and the opportunities for regular migration become more restricted, the only option to get across a closed border is to be smuggled. Approaching the topic from a compliance perspective, this paper looks at Australia and Germany, two states that have implemented the Smuggling Protocol. From the comparative analysis and the conclusions drawn from it, it attempts to propose a change of governance for the international people smuggling regime.

Keywords: international migration law, people smuggling, smuggling protocol
