MigMap conveys a picture of how and where the production of knowledge is currently taking place in the field of migration – and of who is participating in and has access to it. It investigates precisely how the new forms of supranational governance that can be observed in the European migration regime function. It looks, for example, at how European standards in politics and civil society are implemented, and at the authorities, persons and institutions taking part in this process. It examines how the various key players in the public and private spheres are interrelated and funded, as well as at the ways in which these spheres overlap or differ in terms of focus, location or personnel. Finally, it analyzes how responsibilities are allocated and legitimized – and explores the theories, data and discourses upon which current paradigms in migration are based.
The four maps “Key Players”
and “Places + Practices”
provide access to a broad range of information on players, debates, processes and events that together comprise Europe’s present day migration policies.
MigMap was proposed as an artistic project in the context of TRANSIT MIGRATION and as contribution to the exhibition "Projekt Migration"
. and is supported by the German Federal Cultural Foundation
