With the aim of kick starting a comprehensive assessment of the needs at Libya’s busiest border crossing, EUBAM Libya conducted the first in a series of planned visits to Ras Ajdir on 19 May.

The Mission’s delegation, comprising its Head of Operations and the Heads of the Border Management and Law Enforcement units, met with senior Libyan partners to hear first-hand their experiences and challenges at the crossing, in turn informing how the Mission can best assist them.

EUBAM Libya was launched on 22 May 2013. It is tasked with contributing to the Libyan authorities’ efforts to disrupt organised criminal networks involved in smuggling of migrants, human trafficking and terrorism. The mission coordinates and implements projects with international partners in the fields of border management, law enforcement and criminal justice.
