The Mixed Migration Hub launched the report “Detained Youth: The fate of young migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Libya today.” which is exploring the experiences of detention of young migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Libya between November 2012 and November 2014.

Detained in LybiaThe report presents the poor conditions of the immigration detention in Lybia : young migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees held for months without any form of due process and in deplorable conditions. Detention occurs in facilities across the country and serious rights violations, including allegations of violence and brutality, are said to be taking place in most centers.

It also suggests that this inhumane way of handling migration flows in Libya is a push factor to the ever increasing numbers of migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees risking their lives in the Mediterranean to reach Europe.
