What We Do

Since our incorporation as an organisation, LFJL has consistently sought to defend and promote the human rights of everyone in Libya. As we work in an environment that rapidly evolves on a daily basis; we implement strategic, innovative, and flexible activities that seek opportunities to create long-term impacts. In this way we continue to be able to make differences that are life changing for many individuals and benefit Libyan society as a whole.

Our activities are also designed to be holistic, each complementing the outputs of another, to result in harmonised outputs and impacts. This ensures we make use of resources efficiently and are able to achieve substantial results, well beyond what is anticipated of an organisation of our size. We seek to frequently include opportunities for collaboration, experience sharing and capacity building in our activities, as we strongly believe that the joint efforts of civil society organisations are necessary to ensure Libya’s transition is ultimately successful.

Briefing

Around 2,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) were forcibly evicted from Tariq al-Matar Camp on 10 August 2018. The camp in Tripoli, home to over 370 displaced Tawerghan families, was reportedly attacked by members of a militia brigade. The militia looted the camp, kidnapped 78 IDPs, and demanded the camp’s evacuation while threatening demolition with bulldozers. These acts violate fundamental rights recognised by the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights to which Libya is a party, including the right to freedom of movement, self-determination and from unlawful interference with one’s privacy, family or home. Furthermore, the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which has jurisdiction over crimes committed in Libya, identifies the deportation or forced transfer of a population as a crime against humanity.
