Changing Migration Patterns in the Mediterranean Region

A New-Med conference entitled "Changing Migration Patterns in the Mediterranean Region" took place in Tunis on April 24, 2015. It focused on the issue of migration, taking into account the perspectives of a wide range of actors and stakeholders, including states, international institutions, and human rights organisations. After an introductory session which discussed the key migration challenges in the Mediterranean context, the first panel analysed the impact of the “Arab spring” on migration trends in the region. The second panel dealt with the case studies of Morocco, Turkey, and Tunisia. The third and final session concentrated on changing migration patterns, with a special focus on Tunisia.
