What choices and constraints do undocumented migrants experience in the labour market? Alice Bloch


This briefing draws on qualitative interviews with 55 undocumented migrants living in the UK from China, Bangladesh and Turkey (including Kurds from Turkey and Northern Cypriots), carried out as part of an ESRC funded project, ‘Undocumented Migrants, Ethnic Enclaves and Networks’. It explores the range of experiences of irregularity in the labour market,including both the constraints faced by undocumented workers and the ways in which they use mobility and other strategies to exercise agency.
