‘QUEUE JUMPERS’ OR REFUGEES: FUDGING DOMESTIC POLICY WITH INTERNATIONAL OBLIGATIONS IN THE RECEPTION OF ‘SPONTANEOUS’ ARRIVALS
Jackson Nyamuya Maogoto
 
Abstract
Failing states and warlord economies are predatory and threatening environments, particularly for the economically excluded who may also be ethnic minorities. It is easy to see how these conditions of injustice and fear produce deep-seated perceptions of persecution and create sufficiently compelling reasons for people to flee to seek a better life. The increasing volume of new „boat people‟ from sub-Saharan Africa, attempting the hazardous journey across the Mediterranean, are the most obvious current example. [Roger Zetter, 2007] 1
