Introduction

This first briefing paper presents some initial considerations of our fieldwork, focusing in particular on migration flows, routes and trajectories across the Mediterranean. Visit the project website.

Key findings

In 2015 over one million people crossed the Mediterranean to Europe in search of safety and a better life. Thousands died along the way. The MEDMIG project seeks to better understand these unprecedented movements in the region by examining the journeys, motivations and aspirations of refugees and migrants in Italy, Greece, Turkey and Malta.
