CWN Editor's Note: L’Osservatore Romano devoted its most prominent front-page coverage on December 14 to the 2021 right to asylum report by the Italian bishops’ Migrantes Foundation.

The 360-page report, subtitled “The obstacles towards an ever greater ‘we,’” discusses the “wars and other crises that bring the number of people in flight in the world [82.4 million] to the highest level ever, although fewer and fewer migrants obtain protection in Europe, where instead internal borders return, with an improper spread of controls, and where solidarity seems to be on the decline.”
