Download the briefing paper: From a Rock to a Hard Place (PDF)

Almost 600,000 of the one million civilians who have fled the conflict in Libya are migrants. On crossing the border from Libya, these migrants are classed as ’third-country nationals’. This briefing paper documents the impact of their situation on their health and their lives, and points to the urgent and immediate need for more effective protection and a stronger humanitarian response.
