In my master's thesis, I critically analyzed how some European countries and other countries in the world define migration policy through the prism of criminalizing smuggling. With the personal narrative methodical research, I aim to reduce the ambiguity associated with smuggling and undocumented migration. I want to first place smuggling as a historically grounded social and cultural practice, while critically analyzing the relationship between global border enforcement, coercive surveillance and smuggling as the answer to the injustice. I do not want to justify the exploitative practices of smuggling, but rather to question the prevailing discourse of smuggling migrants and the concomitant consequences of intersections between criminal and judicial migration controls. I represent smuggling as a social process involving migrants who want to alleviate insecurity and danger through their irregular journey. As a method of my qualitative research I have used the case study.
