Egypt youth migration ………. fleeing to unknown

December 2nd, 2007 by EOHR

Introduction

People movement from their country to work in other host country is not considered a new phenomena , it is a natural humankind known and will be known by all people including European union .This phenomena will last for a long period of time as long as there is a disparity of resources and employment opportunity on national or international level .Besides, the need for developed country to receive new migrants for different reasons .Searching for the best is the main influenced aspects on migration streams which determines its direction .

In the view of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership agreement and neighbor policies ,there is a short need for cooperation between countries which export workers and countries that receive them concerning the reasons and motivations of migration not only to get rid of illegal migration but to take a developed procedures for real partnership as well .

As regards to migration issue ,some realities should be highlighted as follows :

  • Migration to European countries for work is a main aspect to defuse unemployment and poverty phenomena not only on Egypt level but on Arabian area as well . When we shed light on Egyptian youth migration to Europe ,we can find that we are dealing with European union which is considered the most important partners which thousands of youth are living in.
  • Migration is a healthy phenomena and a source of economic ,social and cultural prosperity for all parts .Moreover, Egyptian government should manage the process through an integrated curriculum to treat the phenomena from all dimensions .
  • The necessary for harmonic national policies which comes from integrated coordination among all ministries and involved state institutions to crystallize the full vision of migration policy.
  • Egyptian workers rehabilitation is an important case for development motivations. It should be coped with western employment market to accomplish a collective sake between the two parties .
  • Remittance case is one of the most developed dimension for migration .This case partake of economic and social development as it is considered a significant source for foreign exchange .
  • The importance of cultural dimension for migration which plays a role of supporting understand and respect between nations. This requires intensifying the dialogue between the two sides and fighting discrimination and contempt of religions and protecting the rights of migrants and recruiting information tools to change the misconceptions about migrants.

In the view of the immigration file to European countries, the phenomena of illegal migration was increased during the last years. Despite the hardship of migration and its severe effects ,most of youth embark upon escaping from Egypt to unknown .Youth are escaping from tragic situation in their country .So the view of perishable boats which are accumulated for migrants became a repeated scene as youth take some of these boats to Libya and then to Europe .

According to the present situation ,there is many aspects make the illegal migration as a critical phenomena .Some of these aspects are poverty and unemployment and the lack of employment opportunity and the absence of national strategic for fighting this phenomena .

The increasing numbers of drowned Egyptians in the Mediterranean sea during sneaking into Europe union countries opened the file of illegal migration in the view of increasing numbers of victims and the weakness of government to fight the phenomena .

EOHR releases the report entitled “ Egypt Youth Migration …………… fleeing to unknown “ to describe the dimension of illegal migration through Mediterranean sea to Europe ,reasons and motivations ,mechanisms and confrontation ,how to solve the problem and the report includes live hearsay evidence of Egyptian families’ victims .

The first section : illegal migration ……………… definition and the dimension of phenomena

Migration in demography science is known by a movement from one place to another for best social or economic or political position ,if this movement is communal or individual as the same . As for sociology definition , migration means the changing of social situation like changing profession or social stage .

Secrecy or illegal migration is considered an international phenomena exists in developed country such as USA and European union or in developing countries such as Gulf countries and eastern countries. Some American Latin countries such as Argentina and Venezuela are considered center of attraction for migrants and in Africa where is the heritage borders of colonialism ,these borders didn’t make any snags to the surrounding tribes including some countries like Nigeria and South Africa .

Dimension of the phenomena

Illegal migration is difficult to be determined according to its nature and the illegal migrant has a disparity kind as follows:

  • Individuals who step in illegally without setting right their legal situation.
  • Individuals who step in legally but they extend after the end of allowed period.
  • Individuals who work illegally during allowed accommodation .

The percentage of illegal migration is incompatible ,The International Labor Organization evaluates the percentage of illegal migration between 10-15 % of world migrants who are evaluated with 180 million individuals .The percentage of illegal migration in the countries of European union is 1.5 million individual according to The International Organization For Migration .

UN estimated the numbers of illegal migrants to the developed countries in the last 10 years with 155 million migrant .International statistics estimated the numbers of Egyptian youth who succeeded in entering many countries in European union during the last 10 years with 460 000 individual including 90 000 individual inhabited Italy in illegal way .

Italian security statistics registered that Calabria ‘s ‘ s beach received 14 boats with more than 1500 illegal migrants most of them are Egyptians in the first quarter of the following year . The total of the illegal migrants who entered Italy through the sea were 1419 individual , 500 migrants died in the sea until now in return for 302 migrants during 2006 .Statistics showed that the Egyptian youth who repatriated from South Africa 2006 were 6748 individual. Also there are 8 000 individual from one Egyptian village inhabit Milan in Italy .

Migration stages

The last three decades of the previous century were considered a crucial stage in the Egyptian migration features .This stage registered a wide range of all kinds of migration as follows :

The first stage ( before 1985)

During this stage , European countries were in a short need of migrated workers of south .European countries manipulated the process of migration through family gathering channels . This stage was distinguished as the southern migrants understood the rules of the game in the northern countries , migrant called for his children right to join governmental school besides, most of migrants make the best use of European security inadvertence during this specific stage .European countries didn’t suffer from numbers of migrants because there was a vast migration to the gulf countries during this period of time. Mr,Berks and Mr.Snikler ,historians , presented their estimation concerning Egyptian migrants abroad who reached 383245 migrants with 61 % in 1975 . The estimation of the international bank for migration was 353300 migrants in 1975 and in 1983 a second estimation of Mr,Berks and Mr.Snikler appeared to declare that

Migration rate in 1980 was 695650 migrants , this estimation modified the first report and after the increasing numbers of migrants to Iraq the estimation modified to 803000 migrants . In 1987 The Central Institution For Public Mobilization and Statistics estimated the numbers of Egyptian migrants with almost 1.964 million individual.

Second stage ( 1985-1995)

This period distinguished by the appearance of legal migrants contradictions and the crowd of legal migrants among the original natives .This period coincides with the closure of coal mines in France and Belgium which was taken most of legal migrants during this time. In the return for this precautionary situation ,migration to north increased , especially in the light of the end of the oil boom and the emergence of massive economic contraction in oily countries.

On 19 th Jun 1995 with Schengen convention which was signed by France , Germany , Luxemburg and Netherlands ,any individual belongs to European union is allowed to move freely in the European union . when Spain and Portugal joined the European union , migration took unexpected dimensions .

This stage included a big irony represented in the international treaties issued in 1990 for protecting the rights of migrants workers and their families .These treaties were signed by 9 countries in the south but the irony represented in the treaties which were refused by all European countries the matter which clarified that European countries need to treat the issue from a new vision even if it will violate the rights stipulated in the international covenants which guaranteed the right to move and search for better future .

The third stage ( 1995 – until now):

This stage took a tougher security feature which was adopted by European countries to impose a severe security policy .This policy depended on implementing the decisions of “the new law for migration “ .This law reclines to restrict family assemblage and repatriate the illegal migrants to their countries.

The second section : illegal migration ……………… reasons and motivations

The dream of getting rid of poverty and hardship of life is the weapon which was used by the gangs of illegal migration to attract Egyptian youth who are fallen as victims to market brokers ,illegal travel bureaus ,migration mediators ,administration corruption and organized criminality groups who take almost 30000 L.E from every individual to travel abroad. These gangs are spreading between Egypt and Libya borders and in some upper Egypt governorates ,and after taking money as a pretext of providing employment opportunity ,these gangs escape without punishment and the Egyptian youth journey end with death or repatriation . Young people are being traveled through perishable boats and they die .If any individual succeeded in arriving to Italy,he would be transferred to Egypt as he is considered a violator to the Italian laws . Illegal migrants are being smuggled to Italy and Malta through sneaking into Libya and through Jordan to Greece and Turkey and Cyprus .Fayoum governorate is considered the most Egyptian governorates rising percentage of migration to Europe .Totoun village is the most famous village in the republic where young people escaped to Italy .Although this village is 40 000 persons ,there are almost 6000 individuals migrated to Italy and it is said that the name of this village was taken from one of the Italian streets .

The gangs of illegal migration contrive new behaviors as follows :

The Marriage of eastern European girls

In 2004 some of the Egyptian youth who are interested in illegal migration became active to marry Europeans to enjoy with legal position to join European union .

Egyptian security noticed that many European girls came to marry Egyptians in return for getting 15000 -45 000 L.E through mediators related to the Mafia of international migration .

This issue was not noticed by the ministry of foreign affairs and security authorities , but it was noticed by countries governments which took some procedures to decrease the phenomena .It changed its laws and legislations after its real joining to European union in order to cope the migration and nationality laws with other European countries laws and to prevent this kind of deception to accomplish the dream of migration .

Tearing passports in transit lounges

One of the deceptive method of illegal migration is the forgery of entrance visa to Latin American countries and some of African countries .When Egyptian youth arrive in the first transit point in Europe , they tear their passports and ask for European protection and not to complete their journey to the destination stated in the visa .

These steps are prepared with specialized gangs in forgery , but European authorities in airports noticed these methods and began to repatriate these individuals to their original countries .

Migration reasons :

Illegal migration is an international phenomena exists in many world countries ,but migration to Europe is become one of disturbing cases which got a major concern in the previous years .Economic motivation was the most main reason for the appearance of this phenomena .This is shown in the level of disparity between developing countries which export migrants and suffer from the shortage of investment and the lack of employment opportunities and proper living levels ,and the developed countries which enjoy with the rise of living standards and the shortage of manpower .

Illegal Egyptian migration is considered a phenomena due to the increasing of poverty and economic deterioration and the lack of employment opportunities .Unemployment percentage was increased in the previous years as it reached 10 % in 2002 and 10 %.7 in 2003 and 11% in the following year ,so we find young people rely to illegal migration .

Government continuity of the policy of depending on the private section led to increase the unemployment catastrophe .the appointment of graduates was canceled from 1984 as for middle qualifications or higher qualifications all the same .the reports of UN returns illegal migration to the increasing numbers of youth in the developing countries and the lack of employment opportunity and the disparity between rich and poor countries .traveling abroad became available for all due to the progress of the international communications and traveling methods and the decreasing of legal migration outlets .

The third section …… Egypt youth migration ……….. ideal cases

I began to collect money from every one .When I asked the man that my son doesn’t has a passport to travel , he told me that it doesn’t matter , don’t you want your son to travel you are talking to much !!.

I knew that my son will be smuggled . my son traveled and took a car from Bata TO Alexandria where he went to Italy with 20 persons . We knew that my son was in the sea and I received a call from the broker who told me that we stayed 3 days in the sea until we reached the borders of Italian coasts . My son succeeded in escaping and enter the city . After one week I received a call from my son informing his arrival . My son went to enhance our living and to find a job and to be able to collect money for purchasing a apartment and committing a project .
