You can now sign up to be alerted when Migration Watch begins.

Alison Killing’s Migration Watch tells the story of the refugees’ and migrants’ journeys and takes a closer look at the issues behind events that are still unfolding.

Bringing together real human stories, new writing, immersive data visualisations, and academic research, Migration Watch is a '10-day real-time' interactive documentary, following the fortunes of ten refugees travelling to and through Europe, in search of a better life.

Migration Watch allows you to:

  • Trace the routes travelled by millions.
  • Accompany one of ten characters on their journey, written exclusively for the project by writers from Syria, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Libya.
  • Listen to a daily podcast to hear the experiences of migrants and refugees in their own words; plus insights from aid workers, volunteers, local government officials and policy makers, and analysis of the deeper causes of this ‘crisis’.
