This policy paper assesses the human and material resources invested in the management of irregular migration within the timeframe of 2008-2013, answering three questions:

How much do irregular migration control policies in Greece actually cost?
Are current policies cost-effective when compared against their outputs and outcomes?
Are there any alternative policy recommendations that could be more cost effective?
