Description: Amidst rising concerns over both the legitimacy and efficiency of the measure of detention, the MIDAS project aspired to critically assess the Greek policy framework of “arrest-detain-return” by providing evidence-based answers to the lingering core question: To what extent is the Greek model of managing irregular migration cost-effective? This was achieved by measuring the human and material resources invested in the control of irregular migration in Greece within a timeframe of 3-5 years (2008-2013).
