Policy Seminar

Crossing the Mediterranean Sea by Boat

Mapping and Documenting Migratory Journeys and Experiences​

Thursday 4 May 2017, 16.00 - 18.00, Brussels


During the seminar, our research team provided the project’s distinctive, in-depth qualitative analysis. Based on 257 semi-structured interviews with people travelling along two routes, at seven sites and during two phases, the research focussed on the impact of policies on those that they affect most directly: people on the move. They considered:

  • What are the impacts of policy interventions on migratory journeys and experiences across the Mediterranean?
  • How do refugees and migrants negotiate complex and entwined migratory and regulatory dynamics?
  • In what ways can a European policy agenda be re-shaped to address concerns such as migrant deaths at sea more effectively?
