Dr Simon McMahon will be speaking at this seminar at the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies on Migration, Universita del Salento in Italy, 25th May. In 2015 more than one million people crossed the Mediterranean to the European Union in search of security and opportunities for a better life. Measures of detention and control were introduced by the EU and several member states in order to try and contain and sometimes divert these flows of people.

Other speakers will include Antonio Ciniero, a post-doctoral researcher at the National Institute of Statistics in Italy who is also helping to organise the event. The seminar is taking place at Aula Ferrari (Palazzo Codacci-Pisanelli) Piazzetta Angelo Rizzo – Lecce and starts at 10am.
