This short report reviews current knowledge on irregular migration between Africa and Europe, and European policy measures used to regulate this migration flow. Such policies are often implemented beyond the EU, in partnership with or delegated to non-member states, NGOs or international organisations, in what scholars often refer to as the external dimension of EU migration policies. We give particular attention to the migration flows from Morocco to Spain along the Western Mediterranean route, where nationalities that are rarely granted asylum under the current asylum practices in Europe dominate.
