This study aims at better understanding the traumatic experience in the asylum seekers that was transferred in Italy in application of Dublin II and III Regulation. In particular we analyzed the asylum seekers that was transferred, at the moment of the identification of the European State Members (EU SM) competence of the asylum procedure, like vulnerable target. This is a common category established by the Art. 8 of the Legislative Decree 140/2005 foresees in Italy and its including: minors, disabled people, elderly people, pregnant women, single parents with children and persons who have been subjected to torture, rape or other serious forms of psychological, physical or sexual violence. We shall highlight the particular way in which people with this legal situation perceive their trauma life events and specifically how they are exposed to the greatest risk of PTSD and suicide. To this end we shall analyze the prevalence and incidence of mental health diseases in the asylum seekers and how the bias prevalence about the Dublin Regulation increased the risk of the chronic vulnerability conditions especially the increase of psychological reactive syndromes, addiction and deliberate self-harm behaviours and suicide attempt. Our hypothesis is that the absence of a common program treatment, the dissemination of health information amongst Member States can have a negative impact on the global health of this target people.
Keywords: Vulnerable target, asylum seekers, trauma, PTSD, management of migration flows.
