Border crossings – Overview

The aim of our research will be to:

- To undertake innovative research on transnational digital networks in relation to a) migrant mobility and, b) EU policies of border security, migration and asylum. Research will not only consider the level of information sharing amongst migrants, but it will also focus on the actual digital organisation of transnational border-crossing movements. Digital and migrant organising of border crossings will be contrasted to the actual EU policies.

- To identify whether within these networks, gender constitutes a significant factor regarding participation in information exchange as well actual migrant and refugee movements.

- To explore the intersections between official policies on border security, migration, and asylum and effective practices and modalities through which border crossing and asylum seeking is enacted through research conducted off and on-line.
