Fortress Europe, the organisation that brings together material concerning deaths of migrants in their attempts to enter Europe, has produced a damning report, Escape from Tripoli, on the plight of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa who attempt to reach Europe after crossing Libya. It illustrates the effects that the externalisation of restrictive EU policies in this field are having on the ground in transit countries. Based on statements by migrants who have passed through Libya, the report traces the different stages in the migrants' journeys, that often last several years.
