The Fight Against the Smuggling of Migrants in the Mediterranean: The Italian Experience

The Fight Against the Smuggling of Migrants in the Mediterranean: The Italian Experience

Ratings: (0)|Views: 33|Likes:
In recent years, Libya has become the main transit route toward the Italian coasts for illegal migrants, African and Asian nationals, trying to enter Europe by sea. This paper argues that the cooperation Italy is promoting with Libya and other states affected by illegal smuggling of migrants at sea is effective and should be supported. It aims not only at ensuring prevention and suppression of criminal phenomena and guaranteeing foreign nationals’ fundamental rights, but also at building the capacity of the states involved according to European models.
