    Abstract

    This dissertation refers to both primary and secondary sources to examine whether the common EU immigration policy is upholding human rights of irregular immigrants, in particular, the right to liberty and the freedom of movement, or whether the EU is becoming ‘Fortress Europe’. This paper identifies policies that have deprived irregular immigrants from their human rights and, furthermore, it concerns the implementation of common policies, such as the Return Directive. It is finally concluded that, as the EU has taken a security-driven approach at the expense of human rights of irregular immigrants, it has constructed a ‘Fortress Europe’.
