Refugees on the Move in the so-called crisis in the Mediterranean have not been recognized as an object of scholarly attention. In recent years, with the events of the Arab Spring and its aftermath, refugees have been over-exposed in the media and in the political discourse.  In contrast, this conference attempts to develop more nuanced approaches to the phenomenon. The paper contributions from a variety of disciplines demonstrate that the problem of inhospitable politics towards refugees at different levels, as well as humanitarian responses to it are key questions to be solved. Each of the sections of the conference introduces a new type of complexity amb ambiguity to the study of population on the move. In a collection of conference papers from a range of disciplines –history, anthropology, sociology, communication studies, law and politics- we look at the different ways in which “refugees on the move” are understood themselves as part of a larger change regarding mobilities in the Mediterranean region and in other regions in the world that are connected to it. Recognizing that serious gaps exist in our knowledge about such a phenomenon makes us think of an overarching strategy that will bring together a first encounter of the international actors, researchers and civil society actors working on a common field, both, from academia and from outside academia.
