Policy Brief 3: Mediterranean Regions and Multilevel Governance of Migration policies

posted Dec 16, 2011, 9:17 AM by Plural CentroStudiEuropeo
The analysis on the 'governance' of migration policies conducted in three Euro-Mediterranean countries, particularly affected by the migratory phenomenon, shows a low degree of cooperation between local, national and European level. In general, if the policies of border control are managed mostly at the national level, the integration and social inclusion policies are carried out mainly at the local and regional level, through both institutional players and civil society associations and NGOs. Especially in the Italian context, third sector associations carry out concrete actions in addressing the immediate needs of migrants, but their intervention is fragile and poorly structured in the medium-long term. In addition, a relevant limit is related to the frequent lack of cooperation among regions and often a project relates to one area, without any attempt of involving the national or international networks.
