Out of Libya—Opening Safe Pathways for Vulnerable Migrants Stuck in Libya
Wednesday 6 July 2022 - 17:15-18:30 Geneva time/CEST | In-person public event
Room S4, Geneva Graduate Institute (IHEID) | Maison de la Paix, Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2, 1202 Geneva
The Small Arms Survey’s Security Assessment in North Africa (SANA) project hosts expert meetings once per year. On the sidelines of its 2022 Expert Meeting, the project will host a public discussion on Libya, with two of its seasoned experts, Jérôme Tubiana and Jalel Harchaoui, who will discuss the issue of migrants in Libya—the need for care, rehabilitation, and legal pathways out.
Taking its starting point in an external report by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)—Out of Libya: Opening Safe Pathways for Vulnerable Migrants Stuck in Libya—the discussion will center around the challenges of protecting migrants in Libya and the alternative pathways for those in particularly vulnerable situations. It will then broaden its focus to unpack the implications of this issue at the local, regional, and international levels, incorporating lessons learned from previous work by SANA and other actors.
This event is hosted by the Small Arms Survey’s Security Assessment in North Africa (SANA) project, which is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
