(p.120) Five The Enclaves: A Migration Gateway to Europe
Europe or Africa?
Liverpool University Press

As the only territories that provide a land border between the EU and Africa, Ceuta and Melilla are magnets for would-be illegal migrants to continental Europe from all over the African continent. Because the towns have a unique position, this chapter examines the specific role of the North African enclaves in illegal immigration. However, because illegal immigration is symptomatic of the whole south–north migration process, the part played by the enclaves is placed in the wider context of the immigration issue between Africa and Europe.

Keywords:   illegal immigration, south–north migration, European Union, North Africa, Ceuta, Melilla
