Mediterranean Journeys in Hope

  • 2016•04•21

    UNU-GCM has partnered with the global media platform openDemocracy to launch “Mediterranean Journeys in Hope“, a web platform where UNU-GCM researchers, policymakers and others will contribute their analysis of the migration situation in the Mediterranean region.

    “Mediterranean journeys in hope” seeks to humanise the debates on migration, questioning the delineation of refugees from other migrants by taking ‘hope’, a basic pathway for survival in the context of human mobility, as our starting point. Our aim is to reposition human rights as legal and political priorities, and to open a space for treating human mobility as both a symptom and a feature of global and regional geopolitics.
