The Outlaw Ocean Project: The Migration Crisis off the Coast of Libya

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 - 5:30pm
Online

Ian Urbina will be discussing the current migration crisis in Libya, based largely off his recent investigation in The New Yorker. The E.U., led by Italy, has trained and equipped the Libyan Coast Guard to serve as a proxy maritime force, whose central purpose is to stop migrants from reaching European shores. Efficient and brutal, the at-sea capture and on land internment of these migrants is what European Union officials hail as part of a successful partnership with Libya in their “humanitarian rescue” efforts across the Mediterranean.
