Undocumented migrants

Irregular migrants are colloquially known as “illegal immigrants”. This infographic draws on research from the Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCCJ), in partnership with the Migrants’ Rights Network (MRN) and Theatre in Prison and Probation (TiPP), which seeks to engage with Migrant Community Organisations (MCOs) and the NGO sector migrant campaign groups to contribute to public policy development in this area.
