1) Creation of an evidence base on the profiles, routes, experiences and plans of individual migrants.


2) Compilation of a synthetic database of migration trends and characteristics.


3) Mapping of the 'reception systems'.


4) Analysis of the dynamics of the migration process across the Mediterranean.



""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 will provide insights into the major humanitarian, social, economic and political implications for the principal

countries of arrival - above all Italy and Greece - as well as Malta which is a central pillar of the search and rescue effort.
The project is also relevant to other potential countries of reception and settlement in Europe, including the United
Kingdom. This will be achieved through a diversity of research methods, including:


A) The collection and standardization of a broad range of secondary data on migration, including statistics provided by
search and rescue organisations and national and European bodies which will be integrated with data-sets made available
by international NGOs, to create a synthetic database on migration trends and characteristics of flows.


B) A survey of individual migrants - with at least 750 participants across Sicily, Greece and Malta - providing insight into
profiles, routes, experiences and migration plans. This survey data will be complemented by 45 in-depth interviews
focusing on migrant life-histories, decision making and use of networks.


C) A systematic mapping of the 'reception systems' in Sicily, Greece and Malta, identifying governmental and nongovernmental
actors involved in the identification, management, reception, integration and potential return of migrants who
make the journey across the Mediterranean.


D) Overall analysis of the migration and reception situation, derived from the above data-sets and integrated with further
interviews with experts and practitioners, the contribution of international advisors, and the evidence emerging from the
existing literature and other research and ongoing research activities.
