Abstract

In the last weeks the world has been facing a dramatic situation called as “Mediterranean migration”. In one week at least 1.000 migrants have died trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to reach European territories. More than 2.500 lives have been lost since June 2014, the United Nation refugee agency UNHCR believes, and the majority of them are coming from Africa and Middle East countries. Recently the Malta's prime minister warned after the Lampedusa tragedy, that the Mediterranean Sea was in danger of becoming a "cemetery" for desperate migrants. The situation is dramatic, considering that UNHCR figures suggest that some 25.000 people fled to Italy from North Africa in 2005, a number which dwindled to 9.573 in 2009. As it can be seen, the problem is growing up, the number of migrants is increasing and there is no chance to solve this problem easily.
