Italy: Stop Closing Spaces for Civil Society and Endangering Lives

13 July 2017

Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) is highly alarmed by the content of the leaked “code of conduct for NGOs involved in migrant’s rescue operations at sea” (the Code of Conduct) which was reportedly drafted by Italy this month. LFJL is concerned that the Code of Conduct puts the lives of migrants and asylum seekers at risk and is a dangerous attempt to ‘close spaces’ and to restrict the activities of civil society organisations.
