Colombia State University: Unravelling the Mediterranean Migration ‘Crisis’

At Colombia State University, USA, Professor Heaven Crawley reported on the preliminary findings of the MEDMIG project and considered some of the reasons why so many people embarked upon the dangerous journey to Europe in 2015, what happened to them on the way and what hopes they held for the future. She ended reflecting on the reasons why the European policy response has led to a humanitarian and political crisis which threatens not only the lives of refugees and migrants but also the future of the European Union itself.
