Central Mediterranean Route: Protecting migrants and managing irregular flows

Brussels, 16/10/2019 - 11:52, UNIQUE ID: 171117_39

The European Union and its Member States have progressively put in place a comprehensive external migration policy and strengthened the work along the Central Mediterranean route. Saving and protecting the lives of migrants and refugees, breaking the business model of smugglers and traffickers and providing legal pathways, while addressing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement: these are the aims at the very heart of the EU's policy.
