Italy, because of its specific geographical location, as well as being a necessary step to reach other European countries, over time has become a territory of destination for migrants arriving by the sea, using makeshift equipments that expose them to serious life threats. A real "useless massacre" which in 25 years has led to the deaths of more than 20 thousand people in an attempt to cross the Mediterranean sea. Antonio Ricci, Senior researcher and founder of IDOS Study and Research Centre, analyses the issue of immigration in the following illuminating article, which is an abstract of his speech at the discussion panel entitled "Immigration Policy of the EU – Experiences from Eastern and Southern Boarders" organized by EPOS at the XXIV World Economic Forum in Krynica, Poland

The renowned Mediterranean complexities make difficult any sort of lasting regional interlinks and the development and sustainment of cooperation initiates. Actually, current context where good news are rare, is defined more by prevailing disputes and misunderstandings rather than by some successes in the domain of cooperation, seems to be still liable to some outside events and recriminations.
