Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEM) countries have become receivers of international migrants without the instruments and policies for integrating them. As a result, irregular migration has grown faster that regular migration. The paper establishes that the SEM currently hosts more than 3.6 million irregular migrants: irregular labour migrants targeting local labour markets are the largest category, followed by unrecognised refugees waiting for return or resettlement, then, in much smaller numbers, by transit migrants waiting for a passage to Europe. Regardless the different reasons behind migration, these three categories tend to merge into one group of population that has no legal access to labour, welfare and protection, that acts as a regulator of labour markets while escaping governments’ control.

Emigration from Iraq has been occurring since the 1970s. The Iran-Iraq War, Gulf War and the subsequent international sanctions placed on the Iraqi regime have all produced waves of emigration. After US occupation of Iraq, however, and particularly since 2005, the country has witnessed unprecedented levels of out-migration. Since the US led war on Iraq in 2003, massive numbers of Iraqis have been displaced from their homes causing the largest influx of refugees into the region. The situation of Iraqi refugees in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon has received the attention of academics. In comparison, the picture of Iraqis in Egypt has remained obscure. This report sheds light on the situation of Iraqis living in Egypt. It answers questions related to numbers of Iraqis, reasons for choosing Egypt, patterns of flight, and the current situation and social networks of this population.

Among the four freedoms that the European Union tries to enhance in its relations with its neighbourhood, the freedom of movement (inter­national migrations) is the most badly treated and accepted. Yet, the Barcelona + 10 Summit, which took place in Novembre 2005, put the stress on the necessity to open a space of mutual cooperation in the field of international migrations. Actually, the Euroopean Union has become the most attractive region in the world for the migrants, with a net inward flow of 2.8 million migrants in 2004 (1.2 in the United States). This tendency is most likely to strengthen with the rapid ageing of the European labour force. In spite of the growing globalisation of the migration routes, the European Union exerts mainly its attraction on its geographical peripheries. Taking account of the high number of young people in the Mediterranean countries, such a situation is based on an obvious North South strategic complementarity. Nevertheless, this complementarity is hampered by national policies mainly based on the idea that the migrants try to leave their country of origine for ever. Such a representation is not correct : more and more migrants are involved in a process of permanent mobility between the north and the south bank of the Mediterranean. Taking account of this tendency, the authors underline the idea that the international migration could increase the professionnal skills of the migrants. From this point of view, they propose to make the needs of the EU and of the countires of origin meet by associating the mobility of the migrants and their trai­ning in order to enhance their level of education.

This paper advances that international migration from developing to more developed countries during the last decades may have resulted in a smaller global world population than the one which would have been attained had no international migration taken place. Because most recent migration has been from high to low birth rates countries, and migrants send back to their home countries models and ideas that prevail in host countries, international migration would have contributed to the demographic transition in the former. In particular, emigration would have fostered education, i.e. the single most important determinant of the demographic transition, among non-migrant populations in migrants’ regions of origin. This framework is tested with data from three major countries of origin of migrants: Egypt, Turkey and Morocco.
