Exhibit Title: Asylum seekers, Malta

Location: Malta

Caption: A group of 106 migrants from Somalia arrives to Malta. During the journey from Libya something went wrong with the dinghy in which they were crammed and they were rescued by the Armed Forces of Malta. Now they will go trough the process that happens to everyone who comes to Malta in this way: identification by the police, request for asylum (Somalis are almost always recognized for international protection), one year imprisonment, access to open centers and then either a future in Malta or the attempt to move to another nation of the European Union. Behind them Captain Etienne Scicluna, who was in command of the operation.
