Irregular sea crossings ignite tensions in the EU
Interview to Nando Sigona on BBC News
How to address irregular sea crossings and the secondary mobility of migrants are igniting tensions at the border between Italy and France, and with other EU member states. But there is more to this than meets the eye.
In this interview on BBC News, I argue that the European Parliament election campaign has already started and that opposing political factions are using migrants and migration to galvanize their political support – with PM Giorgia Meloni consolidating her alliance with Hungary PM Viktor Orban.
Unfortunately, solutions are hard to come by in the current political climate.
