The particular experience of democratic self-management of migration developed in Riace, Calabria, is an interesting case study of the possible evolution of the migration phenomenon in the context of three particular aspects of the policies of the last governments that succeeded each other in Italy, all of European and international relevance.
The failure to sign the agreement on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, the security management of the migration crisis and the distorted media narrative of migration. The coming together of young social scientists from the fields of politics, law, economic geography and media analysis, with real-world experience, has resulted in this book, in which the focus on the highly effective local policies implemented in the small Calabrian village appears as one of the best angles on the most global of phenomena: human migration.
A book that addresses the minds of many people to overcome common sense on a subject, migration, that cannot be left to the mercy of superficial narratives.
