Our partners at PRIO have received funding from the Research Council of Norway to collaborate with filmmakers to disseminate insights from MIGNEX. The new research communications project CINEMIG will use cinematic formats to increase the value-added of MIGNEX research on the causes of international migration.

Many of the issues central to the research of MIGNEX will be technical and target specialist audiences. The CINEMIG initiative enables us to reach broader audiences. In doing so, it will not only disseminate insights on migration but also raise awareness of the contribution of research to tackling societal challenges.

MIGNEX researchers will work with the production company Differ Media, which has produced a series of award-winning documentaries and describe their work as 'telling personal and powerful stories about the most important issues of our time'.

The interaction between filmmaking and research will be facilitated by Differ Media's previous coverage of related topics, as well as by the MIGNEX team's emphasis on research communication. The CINEMIG initiative receives funding from the Research Council of Norway’s FORSTERK programme.
