In recent decades the Mediterranean has witnessed an expansion of the migration routes and exchanges taking place within its shores and a parallel modification of the actors involved. A Mediterranean anthropology, common cultural elements persisting through centuries, explains social and political processes. The persistence of social, economic and cultural aspects, the way in which phenomena take place, enlightens the sense of the 'historical reality of longue durée'. The stability of the Mediterranean immigration model has persisted notwithstanding the succession of nationalities and ethnic groups composing the main inflows at various times. Aspects of the 'refugee crisis' show the way in which migration affects the Mediterranean. Intra-European migrations were already important at the time of the 'Great Migration' at the turn of the twentieth century, when the Americas were the most important destination. The concentration of immigrants in the tertiary sector is a common pattern of international migrations today.
