The growing instability in the EU's southern neighbourhood has increased the number of people trying to reach the European Union. The EU is committed to providing a response to migratory pressures in the Mediterranean, by focusing on several goals:

+ protecting those in need and preventing further loss of life at sea
+ targeting the criminal networks of people smugglers and traffickers
+ addressing the root causes of illegal migration
+ providing avenues for legal migration

This page on the Council of the European Union's website presents an overview of the Council's perspective on this issue
