For thousands of people fleeing violence or extreme poverty, Libya is one of the most popular departure points for reaching Europe across the Mediterranean. The SDC supports two NGOs that aid migrants there who fall victim to attack or arbitrary detention. In 2015, Switzerland devoted CHF 2 million to the issues of migration and the protection of civilians in Libya.

Switzerland brings to North Africa its internationally recognised expertise in security sector reform

01.11.2011 - 31.12.2016

The uprisings in North Africa at the beginning of 2011 were directed to a considerable extent against the security forces on which the dictatorial regimes of Egypt, Libya and Tunisia have relied for decades. There is an urgent need for reorientation of the armed forces of the state – army, police and security services – to ensure a successful democratic transition. Thanks to the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of the Armed Forces (DCAF) Switzerland is able to offer internationally recognised expertise in this area. Partner countries receive on request rapid, tailor-made support in carrying out security sector reform. Despite a number of similarities the challenges in Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Egypt are quite different.

DRC: Improve conditions of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants (mixed migrants) and capacities of relevant stakeholders in Libya, including local authorities and civil society

01.07.2016 - 30.06.2017

Fleeing persecution, violence and armed conflict, mixed migrant groups from Sub-Sahara and the Middle East continue to arrive in Libya despite a fragile protection environment. Due to the ongoing instability and the lack of a national protection system, they are highly vulnerable and risk abuse and detention. The project aims to foster a protective environment for mixed migrants in detention centers and camps in and around Tripoli through improved protection and humanitarian assistance.

The contribution leverages the expertise of the SCBF for financial inclusion in North Africa and seeks synergies with other North Africa projects.
