Libya human bondage risks overshadowing Africa-EU summit
Scant information is available about the situation of migrants in Libya, a country still in havoc. The US network CNN triggered a wave of condemnation when it aired footage ten days ago of an apparent auction where black men were presented and sold to North African buyers as potential farmhands.

"legitimate asylum seekers": nuances of liberation?
"When it comes to Turkey, it is mainly refugees from Syria; when it comes to Libya, it is mainly migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa and the relevant international laws apply in different manners and the relevant UN agencies are different - the UNHCR on one side, especially in Turkey, and the IOM especially in Libya."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
