CMS Special Issue - Mediterranean Migration Research: variable focal length

26 February 2020

This special issue aims to provide an updated picture of some new trends mapping the Mediterranean Migration Research Agenda. The contributions included in this Special Issue have been selected from the 15th IMISCOE Annual Conference in Barcelona (2018), which reaffirmed the importance of the Mediterranean region for research in Migration Studies.

They offer recent and original reflections coming from several disciplines and applying a variety of methodologies and levels of analysis. The selection of articles covers different approaches that go from the nature of human (im)mobility to the policies and relations among states that arise within this context. It also includes a first contribution on the political ethics of migration that frame a reference for dialogue with the rest of contributions.
