Migration Trends across the Mediterranean: Connecting the Dots

This report adds new insights to the ongoing debate over migration across the Mediterranean. Amongst its key finding is that not all migrants intend to go to Europe: many have migrated within their region first and moved on, sometimes years later, after being unable to find the stability, safety, and opportunities they hoped for.

Into the Mainstream: Rethinking Public Services for Diverse and Mobile Populations

 

Amid rapid economic and social diversification of Europe's urban areas, the concept of "mainstreaming" immigrant integration—the idea that integration policy requires a whole-of-government approach and a shift away from group-targeted policies—has swept through policy circles and become embedded in policy parlance at the highest levels.

Una mirada hacia la primera infancia en contextos de migracion internacional

 

En este cuaderno se analiza la situación de vulnerabilidad en que se encuentran los niños y niñas migrantes al ser separados de sus familias o no tener la posibilidad de ejercer sus derechos en los países de llegada. La migración internacional pone de manifiesto el anclaje territorial de los mecanismos de garantía de derechos y como este hecho dificulta la protección de los derechos de los niños y niñas migrantes en el país de acogida haciendo necesaria la existencia de mecanismos de coordinación entre los Estados de origen y de destino.
