Covering EU’s fight against illegal migration


Report for Investigate Europe.

The report focused on the Italian aircraft carrier Garibaldi and the EU’s fight against illegal migration.  The Garibaldi is a key component of the EU maritime mission Sophia. Its mandate is to identify, capture and dispose of vessels and enabling assets used or suspected of being used by migrant smugglers or traffickers, in order to contribute to wider EU efforts to disrupt the business model of human smuggling and trafficking networks in the Southern Central Mediterranean and prevent the further loss of life at sea.
