Unravelling the Mediterranean Migration Crisis

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

The MEDMIG project is led by the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University, in collaboration with the University of Birmingham (UK), the University of Oxford (UK), ELIAMEP (Greece), FIERI (Italy), People for Change Foundation (Malta) and Yasar University (Turkey). It is part of the ‘Mediterranean Migration Research Programme’ which has been established through the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) £1 million ‘Urgency Grant’, co-funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID).
