Abstract: During last century, especially since the late ‘70s, there was a drastic increase in the level of legal and clandestine immigration into the European Union, to which Community institutions have provided with an inadequate answer. Analyzing integration models and their application can one work a comparison between theoretical formulations and practical confirmations, especially about long term effects of the lack of a structural program aimed at regulating in a forward-looking manner the migration phenomena, which is intrinsic in human nature. The aim of this paper is to offer an overview about integration models application to the current situation, characterized by the conjunction of an increase in migratory fluxes and the global economic and financial crisis, in a Europe more and more concerned about the potential implications for internal security, but still far from the adoption of an agreed roadmap of concrete measures. Through a comparison of the systems implemented in some States, there will be a special focus to the model “of the emergency” that characterizes Italy, revealing how inadequate it is in a long term reception perspective, that is inevitable due to methods and motives correlated to what could be called a new age of migrations. Thereby, in conclusion, will be offered some interesting train of thought on regulation perspectives for achieving the harmonization of the social framework, in the spirit of a more acceptable reception, according to contemporary demands.
