This study, under the auspices of an Open Society Fellowship and subsequent Action Grant, explores the extent of, and rationales for, entitlements to service provision for migrants with irregular immigration status in EU countries. It is investigating differing entitlements granted at national, regional and city level and, in particular, the reasoning behind those decisions and the ways in which they were taken. It is also exploring whether entitlements are affected by the absence of data protection safeguards on service users’ personal data.
