The Mediterranean Migration Research Programme is an ESRC-funded programme that was launched in response to the on-going migration crisis in Europe. The ESRC has provided £1 million to support leading UK social scientists to conduct research with migrant and refugee populations who have entered Europe across the Mediterranean. Co-funded by the Department for International Development, the Mediterranean Migration Research Programme provides evidence to inform the development of policy and responses by governments, European agencies, and charities.
Eight projects from across the UK are being funded under the ESRC’s Urgency Grants Mechanism. This website collects and presents outputs, news, and events from all eight projects within the Programme.
For a brief overview of the eight projects that are part of the MMRP, see our Projects page.
