Workshop on “Advocacy and Awareness-Raising Capacities” for Libyan civil society organisations

18 October 2019

From 12 to 16 October ICMPD, together with the EU Delegation to Libya and the Libyan Government of National Accord’s National Team for Border Security and Management (NTBSM), co-organised the 5th Civil Society Training Workshop "Advocacy and Awareness-raising Capacities" for Libyan civil society organizations (CSOs) working on migration.

The workshop took place within the framework of the ICMPD project EU-funded "Strategic and institutional management of migration in Libya", and includes 40 representatives from Libyan CSOs. Also participating in the workshop are representatives from the NTBSM and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Displaced People’s Affairs of Libya. With the European Union funding, ICMPD is supporting the Libyan administration at central and local levels, as well as Libyan civil society and academia, in their efforts to develop the necessary prerequisites for effective migration governance.

Project activities focus on improving migration management, assisting the Libyan administration in improving the structures, mechanisms and procedures related to migration governance and supporting Libya’s reintegration into regional and international dialogues on migration. ICMPD has organised a series of four CSO workshops since the beginning of 2018, touching upon subjects such as "project development", "networking" and "Legal frameworks of migration" and "regulatory framework of civil society". It supports the new generations of Libyan CSOs to create evidence-based, coordinated and sustainable migration policies.
