The ‘Lampedusa’ case
During the past 7 years the southern Italian coasts have witnessed the arrival by sea of around 170.000 irregular migrants with most landings on the small island of Lampedusa
Since 2006 – within the Praesidium project - IOM, UNHCR, the Italian Red Cross and Save the Children established a stable presence on the island to enhance the capacity of the Italian Government to manage the arrivals of such migrants and guarantee the protection of most vulnerable groups
Major migratory flows come from Africa and Asia. The most important departure points are Libya, Tunisia and Egypt
