How has the flow of Mediterranean migrant routes fluctuated before, during and after the European migrant crisis? Successfully integrating migrants into the European Union system has been one of the most difficult and controversial challenges within the Union. Since the migrant crisis peak in 2015, there has been a universal spotlight on the abundant migrant activity through the Mediterranean. A visual analysis of migrant route patterns within the Western, Central and Eastern Mediterranean Sea regions will allow one to see how the flow of migrants has fluctuated overtime due to policy changes in Europe. My research will focus on the spatial understanding of migrant demographic data through a cartographic lens.
