Controllo delle frontiere e violazione dei diritti umani lungo la rotta balcanica

Francesca Cucchi    Consiglio Italiano Rifugiati    



This paper focuses on the possibility of conciliation between one of the main objective of recent European migration policies – the containment of migration movements – and the safeguard of immigrants dictated by European Convention of Human Rights. Furthermore the dissertation will analyze the balance between the right of every State to control their borders together with the right of the European Union to reinforce the control of external borders and the respect of fundamental human rights. In particular, after a brief analysis of the situation over the Balkan route, this paper will illustrate whether and how the guarantees provided in art. 3 ECHR can be applied in relation to the condition of immigrants and the consequent legitimacy of national and European immigration policies implemented along the route.

keywords: Art. 3 ECHR. Balkan Route. Fundamental human rights. European migration policies. Inhuman or degrading treatment.
