Europe has to face an increasing number of arrivals of mixed
migratory flows on its southern shores and the hardships at the
Italian borders will not fade away easily.
Commendable efforts have enabled the Italian authorities and
their partners to respond to the emergencies, yet there is a dire
need of further structural challenges in Italian migration policy
to make the system fit for purpose.
It is time for Europe to take a new direction in order to
provide a more structured and comprehensive response to these challenges.
