UK aid interventions designed to address irregular migration through the central Mediterranean are currently some distance from making a measurable impact, a new review has found.

Detained Youth: Study Probes Fate of Young Migrants, Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Libya
Libya - A new study by Asmita Naik for the Mixed Migration Hub (MHub) reveals a consistent pattern of young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers held in Libya in arbitrary detention in squalid, cramped conditions for months at a time without any form of due process.
