Mondi Migranti is a review promoted and produced by the Centro Studi Medì (Migrations in the Mediterrenean; in partnership with the Department of Anthropological Science at the University of Genoa, the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the University of Milan, and FIERI.

Mondi Migranti has at least three main objectives. The first is to enhance the quality of scientific debate in the field, a debate, which in Italy, is characterized by several factors - the relative 'youth' of the subject, its burning relevance to contemporary Italian society, and its mixture of scientific reflection, political debate and militant controversy.
SecondlyMondi Migranti offers itself as a forum for international scientific debate on migration issues.
The third function of a specialized scientific review is to provide opportunities for the publication of worthy articles, to stimulate scientific debate in the field and to provide a space for the exchange of ideas and research results.

Each issue includes a monographic section and space for the publication of articles on other topics. Also, it has been decided to combine a scientific, mainly sociological, approach with an interest in cultural debate, artistic production and personal accounts. Our intent, therefore, is to propose a cutting-edge (perhaps a half-cast) review in terms of structure, but one in which academic rigour does not deny personal experience and cultural and artistic elaboration. All sections, except "Prospettive" and "Débat et Combat", are based on peer review and so geared towards the promotion of open, clear and pluralist publication criteria within the academic community.
