printable version

 "It 's necessary to set up a European reception center in Sicily ": this is the proposal of Daniela Pompei, expert on immigration issues for the Community of Sant'Egidio, during the International Meeting "The Courage to Hope."

 
Daniela Pompei said that "Europe should establish a continental network of first reception in the places of arrival, and not in Libya or elsewhere." Secondly, it would be necessary to "think about the moving of the refugees from one country to another in order to lighten the most exposed." 
 
She also announced that since 2010 the immigration to Europe shows a declining trend. What is increasing is the migration from South to South because countries in the developing world - also due to the economic crisis of the Old Continent - become more and more attractive.
 
"The European Union – she said – must address the problem of holding the second generation and attracting new immigrants."
