Central Med Info 2.0

Since January 2021, we share parts of our collected data from Central Mediterranean (Central Med) by the end of each month. These contain all information available to us on arrivals, rescues and push & pullbacks in the Central Med. Thus, we contrast the figures of the Italian Ministry of Interior and the UN with a civilian observation. In various statistics and tables we collect and process all information available to us through various channels and networks. In addition to arrival & departure points, nationalities, age and gender, we record any characteristics that may allow tracing individuals or groups. These clues can, for example, help families in their search for their loved ones. The figures are based on our research and are to be read without guarantee. More information and a further explanation of the categories used can be found here

Since March 2022, our Central Med Info, is published as par of a collaboration with the sea rescue organization Mediterranea Saving Humans, in Italian and English in the organization's Med Report.

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.

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.
