Intercultural Complexity of the Southern Mediterranean: Arab-Mediterranean Perceptions and Outlooks

Mohieddine Hadhri & Emiliana Mangone
The present paper aims at placing the Mediterranean within the cultural perceptions and literary productions of the Arab World, particularly the Maghreb. How do collective consciousness and cultural representations in the South see the Mediterranean as a heritage of civilization? Does the Mediterranean exist at all for Arabs? Is it completely absent, or does it holds at least a marginal place in the Arab cultural and scientific productions? If the latter hypothesis were true, what...

Communication for Cultural Integration : The Case of a Secondary Reception Centre

Rosanna Tammaro, Marika Calenda, Iolanda S. Iannotta & Concetta Ferrantino
The language, a human species-specific activity, permits of knowing, organizing and recounting the reality that around us. Although the vocal level represents the preferred channel of expression, everyday experiences are shared in many ways in the community. Facial expressions, gestures, but in general, our action are reflection of the culture that has shaped us. In this paper, the authors report some considerations about the typical communication dynamics of a Secondary Reception Centre, in the context...

Interculturalism in Italy: Is it merely a Language and Communication Problem?

Emanuela Pece
It is unthinkable today not to promote or encourage intercultural communication, it being the only alternative to conflict: a dialogic interaction designed to promote all the instances in the game and to achieve equilibrium points that are recognized by the parties involved. It is necessary to activate transformation processes in the subjects' cognitive system, so that they experience occurrences as a synthesis and reinterpretation of several cultures. Indeed, the presence of different cultures leads to...

Use and Abuse of History and Memory: the Istrian-Dalmatian Exodus and the Current Refugee Flows

Erminio Fonzo
After the World War II, about 300.000 Italian people abandoned Istria and Dalmatia, which were annexed by Yugoslavia, and moved to Italy. The exodus is tied to the atrocities committed by the Slavic forces, the so called foibe massacres. Today the memory of these events is growing, mainly in its public-institutional representations, and many initiatives are organized to remember the exiles. Knowledge and awareness of the Istrian-Dalmatian exodus, however, are limited to a minority of...

Europe / Mediterranean: Media Treatment of the Immigrant

Emiliana Mangone & Emanuela Pece
People define their own behaviour on the basis of their perception of Others, as well as of the expectations they have towards them, paying particular attention to the socio-cultural context of belonging and the reference values they ascribe to the other party and to the relationship existing between them. These dynamics are strongly influenced by the information conveyed by mass media in their dual role as both mediators of reality and opinion leaders, often becoming...

Borders and conflicts in the Mediterranean Basin

(:Unkn) Unknown
The aim of this book, indeed, is re-reading the history of the Mediterranean basin starting from a double interpretative key: sea and border. In order to avoid possible misunderstandings it is good to clarify the sense of these two words, as the sea – and the Mediterranean in particular – is itself a border. The starting point is to re-read the past of the Mediterranean and to move the observation point from the land to...

Dalla direttiva 2011/95/UE alla proposta di Regolamento qualifiche: quale futuro per la protezione internazionale nell’ordinamento UE?

Francesca Perrini
The European Institutions are currently examining a new reform of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). The reform at stake casts many doubts both with reference to the effectiveness of the measures provided in response to the migration phenomenon, and to the guarantees and the protection of the rights of vulnerable categories of migrants involved. In particular, the article makes a comparison between Directive 2011/95 currently in force and the proposal for a Regulation COM...

The National Identity, in the Service of National Identities

Efthymia Lekkou
From the outset, Community law had an absolute authority on national law. The primacy of the EU law has always been one of its fundamental characteristics which ensures its uniform application on the territory of the Member States. The respect of the national identity, introduced to the primary law since the treaty of Maastricht, aims to give a margin of discretion to MS and to counterbalance the effects of the integration. The process of exceptional...

Lina Panella

By the analysis of the most important European Court’s cases-law in this subject, it is possible to note a new sensitivity for human rights.

Le frontiere fisiche e le frontiere del diritto dell’Unione europea nei Territori d’oltremare e negli altri Territori speciali: limite o opportunità per l’integrazione europea?

Luigimaria Riccardi
The article aims to highlight the relationship between the European Union and the Overseas Territorial Entities (Outermost Regions, Overseas Countries and Territories and sui generis territories), which is characterized by two dynamic elements: on the one hand, European Integration and, on the other hand, social and economic territorial differentiation. The incidence of European Union Citizenship and the relationship that all these territories enjoy with the Single Market point to a subtle balance which sometimes makes...

Us and Them: Restricting EU Citizenship Rights Through the Notion of Social Integration

Stefano Montaldo
The article addresses the impact of the concept of social integration on the European Union citizenship regime. Despite the lack of a clear legal definition, integration is gradually becoming a key cross-cutting category of EU law. The degree of integration in the host society influences the intensity of protection granted by EU law, as Member States often resort to forms of integration conditionality to protect their core interests. The analysis contends that recent Court of...

European Judicial Space and Diplomatic Relations: A Uniform Conflict of Law Issue?

Stefano Dominelli
Undeniably, Public and Private international law have common roots, and courts have dwelled on a number of occasions whether or not they can apply the law of a State that is not recognised, or with whom the State of the forum has ended international relations. To answer this question, I juxtapose public and private international law concepts such as “Statehood” and “State” to identify possible conundrums and interplays of the two fields. In light of...
