    This report examines the complex relationship between cities, displacement and stranded migrants, taking as a focus the recent social, political and demographic transformations in North Africa. Specifically it considers the population displacements in and out of Libyan and Tunisian cities during this period, which left many already vulnerable migrants without protection and in a situation of de facto statelessness. This report recommends policy interventions at regional, national and municipal levels that are resilient in times of humanitarian crisis and beyond, given that the region and its cities have long been, and will continue to be, places where diverse flows of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees converge.
