Human Smuggling in Libya, Niger and Chad: evolution amid conflict and political turmoil

A Talk by Mark Micallef , Alice Fereday and Tasnim Abderrahim

About this Talk

This event is based on the recently published report series: Human smuggling and trafficking ecosystems - North Africa and the Sahel covering changing dynamics in Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Niger, Chad and Mali. The 2023 series follows the rebounding importance of smuggling from and through Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Niger, Chad and Mali and the ways in which dynamics play out differently in the individual countries in focus, as the global economic picture worsens, governance strains become more pronounced, and peace and security challenges rise.

This event will present the main findings of the Libya, Niger and Chad country-focused research reports covering shifts in irregular migratory flows converging on the Central Mediterranean in 2022.
