DoMiCoP - The diffusion of migration control practice. Actors, processes and effects

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 895716.

The migrant influx has increased the implementation of EU control actions. At the core of these actions stand communities of practice (organised groups of professionals who share a common concern) that elaborate knowledge and implement policy actions.

However, the nexus between everyday acquired knowledge, communities of practice and policymaking has not yet been systematically studied. The EU-funded DoMiCoP project will provide answers on how and why communities of practice in the EU develop and diffuse the knowledge needed to activate migration control.

The project will identify fields in which communities of practice are formed, analyse them by focusing on the configuration of actors and institutions involved, and reveal the role non-state institutions play in increasing knowledge about less-studied fields of policymaking and policy diffusion.
