Stemming the Flow: Abuses Against Migrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees

In recent years, the government of Libya has grown increasingly interested in improving its relations with various countries, including the United States as well as several in Europe. However, some remain leery about its treatment of migrants, asylum seekers, and refugees, and the release of this report from the Human Rights Watch group provides some information on this current situation. In the 135-page report, their team of researchers provides information on how Libyan authorities have mistreated undocumented foreigners in detention and subsequently forced them to return to countries where they could face persecution, and potentially, torture. The report also notes that part of this problem could stem from the fact that Libya has not signed the 1951 Refugee Convention. All told, the report has twelve chapters and an appendix, and is available in Arabic, Italian, and French.
