Abstract: This paper examines immigration and irregularity in times of both economic growth and recession in Turkey with reference to a conflict model of migration. Dealing effectively with irregularity requires a wider-than-migration perspective, and regional and global cooperation between all stakeholders, including governments and individuals, to curtail. Many of the reasons for irregular migration lie in policies and practices which aim to control migration. Turkey provides an example of a rapidly growing economy in a region of conflicts, attracting immigrants from its immediate neighbourhood and beyond, and highlighting the need for cooperation among all countries involved to manage this migration. Nevertheless, the current immigration regime in Turkey is open to generate more irregular migration
