La comercialización de la migración internacional y los múltiples actores en la industria migratoria

Gammeltoft, Thomas LU and Nyberg Sørensen, Ninna (2014) In Quaderns Electrónics sobre el Desenvolupament Humá i la Cooperació 2. p.6-23
Abstract
During the last 30 years or more, the migration industry has been conceptualized in reference to activities –usually informal or illegal– of certain intermediaries who profit by providing services to migrants.The position taken in this article is that the increasing commercialization of international migration makes it necessary to conceptualize the migration industry more broadly and include both the actors that facilitate migration and those who sell services to control it. A growing number of NGOs and humanitarian organizations has become a subset of the migration industry whose activities may relate both to the control of migration and migrant assistance.
