Doctors Without borders Italy has published the report “Fuori Campo-Out of sight”, about the living conditions of migrants and refugees in Italy.
The first edition was published two years ago. The document is based on Doctors Without Borders (MSF) monitoring of several informal settlements, such as slums, squats and occupied buildings in Italy during 2016 and 2017. MSF attests to approximately 10,000 migrants and refugees living in inhumane conditions, due to inadequate welcoming policies. The report finds that refugees and migrants are living in informal settlement and have limited access to basic services. MSF has asked all the Italian local and national authorities to ensure that all migrants and refugees have access to the medical care, shelter, food, and clean water for the entire period they stay in Italy, regardless their legal status.
MSF Italy also carried out a second study titled “Harmful borders” on the situation in Ventimiglia, an Italian town on the border of France. Of the 287 migrants interviewed by MSF, almost one in four said they experienced episodes of violence at the border.
