40 views

On 4 December 2013, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a press conference at the European Commission, in Brussels, Belgium, on the follow up of the Lampedusa tragedy. The tragedy in Lampedusa, one of the many Europe witnessed in recent years, prompted an unprecedented call for action by EU leaders and citizens. On the same date, the European Commission proposed ways to increase solidarity and mutual support in order to prevent migrants' death in the Mediterranean. Actions proposed are the result of the work carried out by the Commission chaired Task-Force for the Mediterranean, with the aim to bolster EU's policies and tools in the short to medium term.
