Though no longer front-page news, the flow of migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Europe continues unabated. Libya, a transit hub for African migrants, remains crucial to solving Europe’s refugee crisis. Yet, as foreign policy scholars Sabina Henneberg and Mieczyslaw P. Boduszynski point out, an effective migrant policy requires a unified government in Libya – which that nation currently lacks. getAbstract recommends this article to those interested in learning how the international community can connect efforts to reunify Libya with policies to ameliorate the migrants’ plight.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why Libya struggles to implement an effective policy for transiting migrants and
- What the international community can do to improve the situation of migrants in Libya.
