Abstract

There are strong commonalities in the objectives pursued by governments in the field of irregular migration. Their political and legal responses, however, may differ greatly. The experiences of France and England exemplify this, demonstrating different approaches to the question of social rights for irregular migrants with significant implications for public health and human rights.
