The project produces a timely and robust evidence base as grounds for informing policy interventions developed under emergency conditions across the Mediterranean. It does so by assessing the impact of such interventions on those that they affect most directly: migrants or refugees themselves.
Migrant deaths across the Mediterranean Sea raise questions about the limitations of the EU’s definition of human dignity. This project examines different interventions in Lampedusa, Italy, whereby migrant deaths at sea are tolerated and/or contested. It provides renewed appreciation of the potential and limitations of human dignity, by addressing the violence involved in neglecting the value of migrant lives.
A research project mapping the unfolding controversy of Home Office immigration campaigns
A multi-disciplinary network comprised of researchers from across a range of faculties from Monash University and the University of Warwick via the Monash-Warwick Alliance. They explore issues relating to migration, identity, and translation from a variety of literary, cultural, linguistic, sociological, and historical perspectives, and seek to bring that expertise into developing world-leading research and teaching and learning projects.
The project investigates practices of linguistic and cultural interchange, focusing specifically on the 150-year history of Italy as a nation state and its patterns of emigration and immigration.
