Abstract

In today’s world, where the gap between irregular migrants and the settled society is increasing day by day, it is necessary to save the world we live in from protest reflexes and move to a more egalitarian and participative ground of global justice, because as long as the conditions of migration-producing geographies and the social structures of these geographies framed by global inequalities are not improved, the experienced international irregular and involuntary migrations will continue and be discussed in the future. So much so that the waves of migration that try to flow from the south to the north pole, like a river, continue to push the countries, borders and wire mesh and, despite all obstacles and dramatic deaths, infiltrate and reach their target.
