Why removal is not the solution

Courtesy of Jason Ven @TEDxEastEnd 2012

At TEDxEastEnd 2012 illustrating the deportation gap and how, despite the efforts made by Western governments, forced and voluntary removals have only a limited impact on the stock of irregular migrants in these countries and how an acknowledgement of this reality should lead to a change of policy, as for example a regularisation initiative for undocumented migrant children and young people who are either born or have spent a significant part of their childhood in the UK. I also pointed to US-based DREAMers movement as a model for UK-based activists and campaigners. The video of the talk will be available in November.
