Summary/Abstract: Greece is currently housing around 50,000 refugees and migrants, most of whom live in camps that are overcrowded and miserable. As the situation has worsened, compounded by growing conflicts inside the camps and long wait times for asylum, the number of illegal crossings through the Balkan borders has grown. Seeing that there is no legal way to get into Western Europe, illegal human trafficking has become a flourishing industry.
