This chapter throws light on the functioning of infrastures of smuggling along select irregular migration corridors in West Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia. It highlights the complex relationship between migrants and smugglers and the ambiguous role of smugglers who are embedded in systems of exploitation but at the same time open up opportunities for migrants from poor and marginalised backgrounds to access employment and mobility that holds the potential to transform their and their families’ lives.
