Refugee crisis in Malta

Refugee crisis in Malta


Every year, many thousands of people cross the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Fleeing from war, violence and poverty, these people, in search of a better life, accept the risk of dying while crossing the ocean. 

But people who flee are still there in times of Corona. What awaits the refugees at the door to Europe? And how has the current crisis changed the situation in Europe’s smallest country?

This article has been made by Madeleine Saleix, Birka Kallenbach & Johanna Flemming. They investigated the current situation as an assignment for the course Across The Borders, as part of their Minor in International Journalism study.
