Overview Methods Outputs
Back to Projects


This project explores the issue of transit migration in two countries on Europe’s edges: Ukraine and Turkey. By focusing on mixed flows of migrants and refugees, civil society organizations and government agencies, and EU initiatives, it aims to explore the interrelation between transitory movements, refugees and legal restrictions, in order to identify the conditions that determine transit migration. It also looks to clarify the concept of transit migration, challenge present misinterpretations, political bias and methodological shortcomings and instead offer an evidence-based approach.
