The EU Approach on Migration in the Mediterranean

Faculty of Law Assistant Professor Lilian Tsourdi, together with colleagues from the Odysseus Academic Network on EU Migration and Asylum Law, co-authored a large-scale study (220 pages) commissioned by the EP Civil Liberties (LIBE) committee.

The study is titled ‘The EU approach on migration in the Mediterranean’. It analyses, search and rescue operations at sea, criminalisation of humanitarian assistance to irregular migrants, co-operation with third countries (Libya, Turkey and Niger), relevant intra-EU solidarity measures, and the role of EU agencies at EU’s external borders.

 The study, presented at the LIBE Committee on the 22nd June, is accessible here.
