Informal Sector May Have Promoted Irregular Migration

(2012-02-20) "The existence and rise of the informal sector economy in the EU may in fact have promoted irregular migration", writes Gudrun Biffl in her new book "Migration and Health in Nowhereland - Access of Undocumented Migrants to Work and Health Care in Europe" (Eds.: G. Biffl, F. Altenburg).

According to Biffl, the informal sector economy was as high as 40% of GDP in Latvia, closely followed by other new EU Member States, like Bulgaria and Romania, with the Southern European countries in the middle rage, with 20% to 25% of GDP produced in this economic sector.

Countries like Austria, Switzerland and the UK came in at the lower end of the EU spectrum, with 8% to 10% of GDP.
