On meetings: Migration Across the Mediterranean

On 30 October 2015, I attended the Migration across the Mediterranean: Challenges and Solutions meeting hosted at Institutt for samfunnsforskning.

The timing of the meeting was spot on: halfway through the budget addendum went public, relating specifically to the discussions of the Ministries represented. Also always interesting to hear discussions of more the technical issues (how to know who crosses borders, when? what actually happens when someone is picked up on a boat in the Mediterranean? what do is meant by “strategic use” of resettlement?) that tend to get blurred in more casual reporting.
