Risk Associated With Backdoor Migration

Ghanaian youths who embark on these dangerous routes at great personal risk talk of the difficulties
and exploitations they encounter on this long and expensive journey. Irregular migrants are usually
undocumented upon arrival in a host country, and then have to learn the language, try to find work and
rapidly adapt to an unfamiliar culture and navigate the complexities of a new social environment.

Where does the migration journey start from Ghana to Europe?
People move from rural areas to the city centers and then get information about who can help them
through this illegal migration journey. We recently heard about the Volta regional case where they are
known to traffic a lot of women for the slavery trade.
The extraordinary story of an undercover migrant and his ‘secret spectacles’. When Azeteng, a young man
from rural Ghana, heard stories on the radio of West African migrants dying on their way to Europe, he felt
compelled to act. He took what little savings he had and bought glasses with a hidden camera – his ‘secret
spectacles
What are the right routes?
“What are the routes you need to take? Because if you don’t take the right channels to travel out of your
country, at the end of the day you would not be recognized. The worst of it is that when you are not
recognized, you do not have control over your movement in another man’s land. One thing that I have
realized especially coming to Germany is that things are so different; in terms of health when you have a
headache, it is not like our country that you walk into a pharmacy and get drugs or you go to a hospital
you get someone treat you at minimum cost. Here things are so formalized, people registered themselves
through insurance everywhere. If you come unapproved way, you wouldn’t make it. You wouldn’t have
access to these systems, and you are left on your own.
