Criminalization of Migration & Solidarity in Italy

In the course of the collective attempt to shut down its borders, the EU uses numerous means of deterrence to prevent people from seeking safety in Europe. The criminalisation of people on the move and those who are in solidarity with them has been a widespread strategy for years. In Italy, too, people are prosecuted under the charge of "aiding and abetting unauthorised entry".

Criminalisation of migration and solidarity

Migration and solidarity with people on the move is being increasingly criminalised. Resisting this criminalisation is a central part of our work. We research and document socio-political developments and cases of criminalisation. In doing so, we provide concrete support for those affected and inform and sensitize a broad public in the form of information materials, public events and campaigns.

Our latest Italy magazine Streiflicht is here! In 'Kosmos Palermo', we look at the realities of life for migrants who come to Palermo, Sicily, and try to build a life in the city. In doing so, they repeatedly encounter hurdles. At the same time, there is a dense network of organizations in Palermo that try to support migrants in overcoming these challenges. Unfortunately "Spotlight Italy" is currently only available in german.

Jahresbericht 2023: Widerstand gegen das europäische Grenzregime

2023 war kein gutes Jahr für die Menschenrechte. Kriege, Konflikte, wirtschaftliche Not und klimatische Veränderungen haben viele Menschen gezwungen, ihre Heimat zu verlassen. Gleichzeitig konnten wir eine fortschreitende Externalisierung der EU-Außengrenzen beobachten. Politisch scheint in der EU alles dafür getan zu werden, die Festung Europa zu stärken. Damit sollen möglichst viele Menschen davon abgehalten werden, Schutz in der EU zu suchen. Die Leidtragenden all dieser Entwicklungen sind, wie immer, die Flüchtenden selbst. Bei alldem können wir nicht tatenlos zuschauen. Deshalb haben wir auch 2023 kritisch beobachtet, dokumentiert, informiert und interveniert. Die Ergebnisse unserer Arbeit findet ihr im folgenden Bericht.

Italian-Libyan Pacts on Migration - How a renovated partnership is negatively impacting the rights of people on the move

Italy and Libya have been collaborating for a long time to prevent people on the move to reach Europe. People on the move have spoken up multiple times about the situation in detention camps and the many tortures inflicted by Libyan authorities and its militias. However, Italy and the European Union are purposely ignoring such testimonies of violation of human rights and keep funding and training the Libyan coast and border guards.
