Editor’s Remarks:
At 173,799, 2016 has seen the largest number of migrants arrive from Northern Africa by boat that Italy has ever seen. The Eastern migration route from Turkey and Greece has fallen since improvements in Turkish policing but the EU have yet to work with the Italian law enforcers to curtail migration. With 80% of southern Italians voting against the constitutional changes, the referendum highlighted the Renzi government have neglected the problems that this region faces in light of the unprecedented migration. As the breakdown of law and order in Libya only worsens, it is unlikely these numbers will go down, and could push Italy and the EU to a breaking point.
