Our research finds that despite the universal adoption of restrictive immigration policies, together with the criminalisation of migration, there remain relatively large numbers of undocumented migrants in the countries under investigation. For UWT this definition includes foreign citizens present on the territory of a state, in violation of the regulations on entry and residence, having crossed the border illicitly or at an unauthorized point; those whose immigration/migration status is not regular; those who have overstayed their visa or work permit; those who are working in violation of some or all of the conditions attached to their immigration status; and failed asylum seekers or immigrants who have no further right to appeal and have not left the country. This results in higher calculations of numbers than found in the CLANDESTINO project, which has been able to provide detailed and robust data on undocumented migration, but excluding non-nationals working in violation of their migration conditions, including asylum seekers. We note that increased concern about undocumented migration has occurred in the context of the abandonment of the policies, enacted in the 1970s, of closed borders.

During the third month of the project a methodology workshop was held in Vienna to

plan the methodology for the rest of the project. This three-day meeting was essential

for agreeing the methodology for: preparing the estimates of undocumented migration;

developing the Undocumented Migration Glossary; deciding on which experts to

include in the stakeholder interviews on migration trends and policy and the process of

developing the interview guidelines; and deciding the selection criteria for the migrant

worker interviewees and the process of developing the migrant interview guidelines.

Ethical issues concerning interviewing undocumented workers were also discussed, as

well as general guidelines on carrying out and analysing qualitative interviews.

The methodology workshop was felt by all partners to be an important part of gaining a

deeper understanding of the different ways of thinking and working among the

partners, as well as the differences in migration policy and discourse in all the partner

countries. This is a complex process, which is crucial for successfully working together

in an international project, and the workshop was found to be a crucial part of this

process at an early stage in the project.
