The Living Conditions of Refugees in Italy

Februar 2011

This Report by Maria Bethke & Dominik Bender documents the extremely difficult living conditions of asylum seekers and persons with protection status in Italy.

This description of the circumstances under which people live aims to contribute to an improvement of the situation. Those who are politically responsible in Italy are obliged to create a sufficient number of humane accommodation facilities and adequate integration measures.

Until Italy complies with its obligations, we hope this report will help to persuade other EU countries to refrain, for the time being, from deporting refugees to Italy.
