Observatory of the Refugee and Migration Crisis in the Aegean

The objective of the Observatory is the systematic and comprehensive recording of multiple dimensions of the refugee and migration crisis, both historically and on a daily basis: demographic, economic, institutional, political, religious, and cultural. The website organizes and posts content regarding the geographic region of the Aegean islands and the coasts, which includes original materials that are produced by the Observatory. The measurable recording and research are symbolically reflected in the logo through measuring axes (diagram) and a single point (value) while revealing a boat figure, the means for transportation of migration flows. The orange comes from the lifejackets that are used in these kinds of transportations.
