In 2014, when no one spoke in Europe about the migration crisis, 229,012 people reached the Mediterranean block, the equivalent of 0.04% of the EU population. The block lived in 2015 a migratory crisis, aggravated by its chaotic management. The route from the Middle East (from Syria and Iraq mainly), added to the arrivals from Libya to Italy, brought to Europe to little more than a million people. In 2016, 374,314 people arrived and in 2017 there were 184,843. So far this year, 50,430 people have crossed the Mediterranean.
