Constructing an evidence base of contemporary Mediterranean migrations

About

“EVI-MED – Constructing an evidence base of contemporary Mediterranean migrations” seeks to conduct urgent data collection and essential analysis on the Mediterranean migration crisis and to make these swiftly and publicly available to policymakers, practitioners, migrant community support organisations, and the research community.

EVI-MED is a Middlesex University project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

The project team, led by Professor Brad Blitz, includes Professor Eleonore Kofman, Dr Alessio D’Angelo, Dr Nicola Montagna and Martin Baldwin-Edward.

The project is undertaken in partnership with the Greek Council for Refugees (Greece), Borderline Sicily (Italy) and People for Change Foundation (Malta). It also benefits from close collaboration with a number of well-established specialist organisations, including the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), Migrant Report, the Regional Mixed Migration Secretariat (RMMS).

EVI-MED academic partners include the University of Palermo and the University of Thessaloniki.
