GENEVA, Switzerland, June 24, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- The session aims to identify migration priorities to guide the development of future policies and programmes related to migration, and will reflect Libyan national interests, applicable human rights guarantees, and support for the socio-economic development of the country.

Eight Libyan ministries with migration functions are set to attend. They include the Ministries of Interior, Foreign Affairs, Labour and Capacity Building, Health, Finance, Justice, Defence and Social Affairs. Participants will agree on a draft outline strategic action plan.

The session is one of four events running through November and is part of larger EU-funded programme: “Stabilizing at-risk communities and enhancing migration management to enable smooth transitions in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya (START).”

The project is designed to establish the pre-conditions required to enable smooth transitions and comprehensive and sustainable recoveries in each of the three countries.
