Considering how changing conditions in the Mediterranean Region have affected the decisions of those considering migrating from Sub-Saharan Africa to or through the Region, this book represents an important and overdue contribution to international policy-making and academic discourse. In current discussions relating to this migration phenomenon, the complexity of individual decision-making are left unacknowledged and hence subsequent policy responses draw upon simplified models. In this volume, individual decision-making takes central stage by bringing together contributions demonstrating very different types of decision-making frameworks.
