EU Border Assistance Mission (EUBAM) in Libya
On 22 May 2013, the Council of the European Union gave the green light for EUBAM Libya, a civilian Mission under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), to support the Libyan authorities in improving and developing the security of the country’s borders.
This civilian Mission responds to an invitation by Libya and is part of the EU's comprehensive approach, which supports the Libyan post-conflict reconstruction. EUBAM Libya's initial mandate is for two years; its headquarters is in Tripoli although it works currently out of Tunis.
Mr David Ramos Peinado is the Acting Head of the European Union Integrated Border Management Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM Libya). He succeeds Mr Antti Juhani HARTIKAINEN.
The annual budget of the Mission has been around €26 million.
