"Beyond the contradictions of an international coalition that was meant to guarantee the "responsibility to protect", it is the overall European immigration and border control policy that has to be put to question. Since the early 2000s, north African countries have accepted the role as Europe’s border guards, chasing and detaining people who wanted to exercise their right to emigrate. Current historical events in the Arab world must be the opportunity to reconsider relations between the northern and southern Mediterranean and to break away from the liberty-stifling heritage of the EU’s dictator-partners to put an end to the bloodshed at its borders."
