Between 2015 and 2016 more than one million people crossed the Mediterranean, Many fleeing war and persecution. The reception of refugees and migrants has been a major plank of EU policy. This event reports on the findings of the EVI-MED project, an 18 month study which seeks to map and evaluate reception systems in the Mediterranean.
Drawing upon survey data of 750 people in Greece, Italy, and Malta and interviews with migrants and a diverse range of national and international stakeholders, this event presents an independent systematic assessment of the ways in which the EU and its partners have sought to handle the reception of unprecedented numbers refugees and migrants and their responses.
