Smuggling migrants in Greece: Trying to understand the problem
John Winterdyk (Mount Royal College, Calgary, AB., CANANDA)
Georgios Antonopoulos (Durham University, Durham, ENGLAND)

Following up on a qualitative case study the presenters did on a sex-trade trafficker in 2004, this study focused on the challenge of trying to obtain reliable data on the extent of smuggling migrants into Greece. The study was also motivated by a recent UN report which acknowledged that among the EU members, Greece has one of the more serious problems with illegal migrants. In order to get a sense of the problem and difficulty in quantifying the problem, as noted by Jena-Phillippe Chauzy of the International Organization for Migration, we examined four different sources of data in an effort to better understand the limitations associated with trying to obtain reliable and valid data on the subject. The four data sources included: interviews with police officers, official statistics, interviews with a number of migrants, and interviews with several known smugglers. In the study we also examined the current extent and nature of migrant smuggling in Greece and contrast it with other EU members. The presentation will conclude by identify a number of the major limitations confronting data collection of smuggling as well as offer a number of policy recommendations that could serve to ameliorate the situation.
