The MAGYC project led by the Hugo Observatory seeks to assess how migration governance has been influenced by the recent “refugee crises” and how crises at large shape policy responses on migration. The general objective of the project is to appraise policy responses in the light of the ‘crisis’ and assess their efficiency for the long-term governance of migration. This overall objective shall be fulfilled through the pursuit of different specific objectives:

  1. Reflecting on policy gaps in migration governance, and analysing jointly the emergence and implementation of regulatory instruments (including national public policies, bottom-up local initiativesandregional and international frameworks)
  2. Correlating this analysis with migration dynamics in order to develop indicators of migration governance, to better assess the effectiveness of the different policy instruments developed in reaction to the crisis.
  3. Understanding the articulation between migration dynamics and policy responses.
  4. Offering a dynamic analysis of policy-making, focusing on knowledge-policy discrepancies, cognitive gaps in policy making and points of contention.
  5. Proposing possible avenues for the development of innovative migration governance strategies that break away from path dependency.   

MAGYC Work Packages

The work plan of the MAGYC project is organized around two key dimensions of the crisis: time and space, as guided by the underlying assumption that migration ‘crises’ are a product of both an acceleration (time dimension) and a concentration (space dimension) of migration.
