The University of Malta Racing (UoMR) team designs, builds, and races a Formula Style racing car in a Formula Student competition every year. Last September (2014) they competed in Parma (Italy)with their first car. Building this car brought together students from five different faculties with engineering knowledge, costing, marketing, and business proposals for the judges. UoMR is run like a small vehicle manufacturing company.The team is currently working on its second car for Parma 2015. Improvements are being made on weight, speed, and design, bringing a faster and better car.

Adrift at Sea: Laws, Morals, and Policies in Malta’s Search and Rescue Region

Since 2016, EU member states have scaled down search and rescue operations that save lives at sea and replaced them with policies intended to reduce the number of migrant arrivals to Europe. These policies of non-assistance and forced returns to Libya render the central Mediterranean one of the world’s deadliest border spaces and force asylum seekers back to a war zone where inhuman and degrading treatment is well-documented. A growing network of civil society organisations continues to challenge these policies in the courts, on the streets, and at sea. This article, the second in a two-part series on migration, is based in part on interviews conducted with Dr Omar Grech, Senior Lecturer in International Law at the University of Malta (UM), Dr Derek Lutterbeck, Deputy Director at the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies at UM, and Dr Felicity Attard, expert in International and Maritime Security Law at the Faculty of Laws at UM.

Concentration Camps in Libya

Following the NATO-backed overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya descended into a decade of disunity and violence resulting in incalculable suffering and loss of life. Today, much of the country remains a war zone, and migrants in EU-sponsored Libyan detention facilities continue to suffer well-documented, gross human rights violations. This article, the first in a two-part series on migration, is based in part on interviews conducted with Dr Omar Grech, Senior Lecturer in International Law at the University of Malta (UM); Dr Derek Lutterbeck, Deputy Director at the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies at UM; and Dr Felicity Attard, expert in International and Maritime Security Law at the Faculty of Laws at UM.

  1. Thank you for perhaps the most level headed thing I have read today. I
    think it could also be useful for everyone to know how and where to fill
    a form online. I mostly use http://goo.gl/OZjLyu to edit my PDFs. I think it also
    allows you to to create fillable pdfs and esign them.
