Información Comercial Española (ICE), Revista de Economía, with the cooperation of Casa Árabe, is presenting this monographic issue of the ICE Economics Journal titled “Euro-Mediterranean Migrations: Socio-economic impact and policies.” The articles that make up this monographic issue are quite a novelty in a field in which there is still a need for more in-depth study of the most crucial topics involving the migratory processes we are currently experiencing, with the Mediterranean at their core. This is why we trust that the journal’s distribution will contribute to increasing knowledge and opinions about Euro-Mediterranean migration and help increase sensitivity about and offer suggestions on migration policy to be applied within the context of the entire Euro-Mediterranean area, even with the potential for being replicated in other places around the world.

The journal Información Comercial Española (ICE), Revista de Economía is a periodical publication that is published bimonthly by the State Secretariat of Trade. The publication’s origins go back to 1898, though it has been published in its current form since 1950. Each issue consists of a monograph that includes original articles, covering a broad range of topics dealt with from an economic, theoretical and practical perspective, with a special focus on international factors. It can be read online at where all of the articles published since 1999 can be found in PDF format with open access.

When the event comes to an end, those attending will be given a copy of the journal (while supplies last).
