AbstractThis book provides an inside perspective into human smuggling processes. Based on biographical interviews with smuggled migrants in the Netherlands, it is shown that the underlying causes, the way the journey evolves, as well as the outcome of smuggling processes may differ considerably. By using an inside perspective, it becomes clear that smuggled migrants are not passive actors, that there is a broad variety in types of smugglers, and that interactions between the two determine to a large extent how the process evolves.
