What does the externalisation of the EU borders to Sudan have to do with the outbreak of war?

Italian-Libyan Pacts on Migration - How a renovated partnership is negatively impacting the rights of people on the move

Italy and Libya have been collaborating for a long time to prevent people on the move to reach Europe. People on the move have spoken up multiple times about the situation in detention camps and the many tortures inflicted by Libyan authorities and its militias. However, Italy and the European Union are purposely ignoring such testimonies of violation of human rights and keep funding and training the Libyan coast and border guards.

Combating migrant smuggling has been a top priority of European migration policy since 2015, with huge financial resources invested in this policy objective. This study examines the reality of anti-smuggling efforts in Greece and analyses the current legal framework as well as its practical implementation. We observed and documented 81 trials with 95 affected individuals and encountered a lawless space where violence and arbitrary justice is carried out to deter others from fleeing.
