One million irregular migrants in Germany?
Untertitel: A methodological critique of estimates of irregular migrants in Europe published by Pew Research Center
AutorInnen: Hosner, Roland Publikationsjahr: 2020
• The estimated figures on irregular migrants in Europe recently published by the Pew Research Center are methodologically incorrect and conceptually flawed in the case of Germany.
• Amongst other things, asylum seekers are incorrectly classified as irregular migrants, although European and German legislation explicitly allows their stay during the asylum procedure.
• When adjusted for incorrectly included groups of migrants as well as for the official number of irregular migrants, the estimates become redundant (zero).ISBN: 978-3-948289-03-4 Open Access
