The MIGRATE Jean Monnet project aims to create a trans-European forum for debate and dialogue and build a network of researchers, with expertise in EU Integration, Western Balkans Integration, Migration, Political Economy, Sociology, Law, Politics and Economics.

The project focuses on EU integration processes through investigating the impact of the on-going post-2014 migrant crisis on these processes as a trigger-event of instability and transformation.

The project began in September 2016 and is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, The University of Belgrade, The South-East European Research Centre, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, The Centre for Southeast European Studies, The Navarino Network, Konrad Adenauer Stifting, Biklent University, and Central European University.

Dr. Majella Kilkey leads the Sheffield team’s work on the impact of the ‘crisis’ on European integration. Dr. Francesca Strumia also works on the project.
