Rapid Impact Monitoring Study – New Perspectives

Towards the end of 2022 the number of Albanian migrants crossing the channel in small boats declined sharply, continuing to fall by 88% in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the same period a year earlier. Was this the start of a systemic change in Albanian migration patterns? Had underlying drivers, pull factors and alternatives shifted? Or was it simply an anomaly?

TAG was commissioned by the British government to conduct rapid research to unpack these and other questions. We are pleased to share this outline of the findings, which point to a dip, but likely not a long-lasting or structural change, in patterns of illegal migration from Albania.
