Malta: Waves of impunity. Malta’s human rights violations and Europe’s responsibilities in the central Mediterranean

This report describes how this strategy works and the impact it is having on their lives. It also recommends measures which must urgently be put in place by Malta, Italy and European member states and institutions.
