The last decade many African emigrants have tried to enter the European Union and Spain and the Spanish government and the EU have developed different measures to stop this immigration. The aim of this thesis is to discuss and analyze the immigration management measures taken by Spain and the EU to see how well these function, and if they have any consequences for the immigrants. Different theories on migration and migration management are used together with empirical material such as studies about Spain and the EU.

The migration management measures are divided into preventive and controlling measures. Preventive measures aim at addressing the root causes of emigration whereas the controlling measures aim at curbing immigration flows through control and coercion. The study shows that both preventive and controlling management measures are used.

The preventive measures have an uncertain outcome, and a large part of the controlling measures such as reinforced border control and outsourcing of measures to third countries have adverse effect such as promoting breaches of human rights and human smuggling. (Less)
