Abstract:This study will look at what the EU does to manage migration on its southern border and more specifically at the cooperation between the EU, its member states and third states with regard to migration. For this specific case Libya was picked as it is one of the main transit countries for migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean to find their way to Europe and furthermore one of the least stable countries after the regime change.It is shown that cooperation mostly was and is intended to stop migrant flows before they leave the transit country. The study finds that the situation is critical and that rights of migrants and refugees might be violated. It can be stated that the difficulties on the Libyan side due to the on-going civil war are at the moment too severe to expect change in the near future. This severely limits the possible effects of any cooperation between the EU and its member states on one hand and Libya on the other hand.
