On November 20-21, 2019, the second Project meeting of the European project MIRROR (Migration-Related Risks caused by misconceptions of Opportunities and Requirement) took place at the University of Malta. During the works, Luciano d’Andrea and Daniele Mezzana, of K&I, presented the first results of a study of the scientific literature on international migration, highlighting some critical aspects such as: the diversification of migration; the new migration patterns; the securitization narratives; the multi-source communication of migrants.
