Summary

To learn more about the lives of migrants in Misrata, IOM Libya partnered with Georgetown University’s Center for Contemporary Arab Studies (CCAS) to conduct a mixed-method study consisting of literature review, qualitative interviews and a quantitative survey administered to nearly 1,000 migrants in Misrata. The study aims to shed more light on the lives and background of migrants in Misrata by examining the abilities and skills they bring to the labour market, challenges they face and their employment and education-related aspirations.
