AbstractThis policy brief is the culmination of papers presented at the IMISCOE conference (Irregular) Transit Migration in the European Space, which took place 18-20 April 2008 at Koç University, Istanbul. It argues that learning what transit migration is – and what it is not – can help policymakers refine migration measures. It presents how the term transit migration is both a political loaded term (often referring to unwanted migration) as well as a sociological concept that aims to cover a specific though complex set of types of migration. A better understanding of transit migration could alleviate the stigmatisation of migrants and transit countries.
