Immigration, an alliance between border countries and islands: we Leave the solitude of the borders
the ROME - A group of seven local authorities have signed this afternoon in Malta, the agreement for the establishment of the network of border towns and of the islands in the Border towns and islands network). The network was founded on the initiative of the municipality of Lampedusa and Linosa, which is also the coordinator of the project Snapshots form the borders, where the local authorities the constituent members are. To give the news in a note is the ngos Amref Health Africa-Italy, partner of the project.

in Addition to Lampedusa, the founding members of the network are the local council of the city of the maltese Marsa, that the cyprus Agios Athanasios, the French system of Grande-Synthe. Then there are the towns of Pesaro, Siklosnagyfalu, Hungary and Strass in Steiermark, Austria.

"today, in Malta, is another important step for this project, with which we can get away from that loneliness that sometimes strikes the local authorities of the border," said the mayor of Lampedusa and Linosa, Toto Martello, who added: "it is vital that the migration to come to be a political process."

Joseph Azzopardi, mayor of Marsa, he added: "it Is an important day, because as the reality of the border, mediterranean and european, we share the same problems and the same needs". Roberta Rughetti, director of programs, Amref, said: "as an organisation in this network we want to help build a correct narrative of the migration, as we do for Africa". Today for Rughetti "is a step that lets you go beyond the duration of a project. Has the goal to network, to dialogue with the territories on a daily basis addressing the issue of migration. We hope that this will be a stimulus to the institutions".

The network Btin is composed only by the local authorities of the cities located on the borders of europe, as full members. Its purpose is to promote the collaboration and mutual support between the border towns and the islands to give voice to the institutions, decision-making national, european and international. It will focus on issues related to solidarity among cities and countries, to the common needs of the communities and local citizens, to more efficient ways of reception of migrants, collaboration to increase the shared responsibility of the european and of the member states, development cooperation, peace and dialogue between the local authorities.

This will include the networking and exchange of best practices, various activities of common policy at Eu and national level and communication activities shared that will increase the voices from the borders. Also will include educational approaches common to the local communities, addressed both to local citizens and to migrants. By 2020 the network will welcome new members, with the aim of strengthening the cooperation between the local authorities and their voice vis-à-vis national and european institutions.
