This book focuses on legal framework on criminal measures on trafficking and/or smuggling and facilitating illegal entry in six Member States: France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK, and European Union. It examines, in each Member State, how the insertion of immigration into criminal law takes place. There are two levels on which the insertion of immigration into criminal law takes place: the legal and social. It also examines how a foreigner comes to be seen as a criminal and the role of law in this process. The book also examines the legal framework of criminal law in respect of trafficking in human beings, illegal immigration as a criminal offence and prosecutions which have taken place under this legislation. It considers the political and social debate on trafficking in human beings and illegal immigration as a criminal offence specifically around the use of criminal law in this field.
