I'd like to know a little bit more about the reasons behind the migration flows to Europe, especially in recent years, and the (eventual) connections with (organized) crime, especially in Southern Europe. I'm thus looking for a book which explains the historical, political and/or economical reasons behind this phenomenon. It's a delicate topic and I know there's a lot of misinformation around it, especially when it comes to the relation between migrants and crime.

  • Much of it is people fleeing the wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Libya - something like half the population of Syria is displaced, mostly to Turkey. – pjc50 Jul 20 '19 at 9:13

    I find this question confusing. Do you want a book recommendation discussing migration flows to Europe? Or a book discussing a connection between immigration and crime in Europe? – Brythan Jul 20 '19 at 15:36
  • Is this question really too broad? There might be books about this topic? Maybe the asker could additionally specify which level these books should be. More like academic discourses of the topic or more like digestible for everyone but maybe less scientific? – Trilarion Jul 21 '19 at 9:21
  • What is the general policy of politics.stackexhange for book recommendations? They tend to get outdated. Next year there might be better books on the market. – Trilarion Jul 21 '19 at 9:23
  • @Trilarion That would be a good question to ask on Politics Meta, if you'd be so inclined. – Joe C Jul 21 '19 at 15:28
