Abstract:This book investigates irregular African migration to Europe, by focusing on the conditions that shape and influence the lives of Africans before, during, and after their 'migratory projects'. The authors use migrants' narratives and draw on evidence-based field research from different disciplinary backgrounds, in an attempt to deconstruct common assumptions around this issue. Contents: 1.

Sub-Saharan African migrants heading North: a mobility perspective (Joris Schapendonk); 5.Nigerian border crossers: women travelling to Europe by land (Kristin Kastner); 6. High-risk migration: from Senegal to the Canary Islands by sea (Miranda Poeze); 7. Stranded in Mauritania: Sub-Saharan migrants in post-transit context (Armelle Choplin and Jérôme Lombard); 8. Untangling immobility in transit: Sub-Saharan African migrants in Istanbul (Brigitte Suter); 9. Marabouts and migrations: Senegalese between Dakar and diaspora (Amber Gemmeke); 10. 'Today, I would never go to Europe': mobility for resources and local development in West Africa (Laurence Marfaing); 11. Migration, class and symbolic status: Nigerians in the Netherlands and Greece (Apostolos Andrikopoulos); 12. Lessons for life: two migratory portraits from Eritrea (Magnus Treiber); 13.
