Education and Child Protection Assessment of Mixed Migrant Communities in Tripoli and Misrata


Assessment of the Child Protection concerns as well as the Educational context in two locations in Libya in order to inform the project design procedure for a more effective response.


A quantitative approach was followed by Cesvi in order to conduct the assessment. A questionnaire was designed to capture the reality at Household (HH) level. The data collection was done through interviews with children’s parents or caregivers. In cases of Unaccompanied Minors (UAMs), the interview was conducted with the minor. The criteria used to include a HH was the presence of at least one member between the age range of 5 to 17 years old. The survey was conducted from 11th November 2018 until 14th December 2018. The study aims to capture data concerning the general situation as well as specific characteristics of the households, rather than focusing strictly on Child Protection concerns. This approach was used to gain a more holistic understanding of children's well-being and development since the family represents one of the main protective factors for children.

The questionnaire is divided into two main sections. The first section records the Household profile. This includes data collection regarding nationality, legal status, accommodation, protection issues, migration, future intentions, and livelihood related questions. The second section collects information about each household member. This part of the questionnaire is focusing mainly around education level (both for children and adults), Child Protection related concerns, as well as vulnerabilities or special needs of the family.
The tool was translated into three languages (English, Arabic, and French), selected by the enumerators based on the languages spoken by the respondents.
All the forms were completed electronically on the ONA mobile data collection platform, preventing inconsistencies as well as the significant cutting time necessary for data entry.
The sample selection of households was to a large extent identified through a snowball sampling procedure, and thus cannot be deemed to be scientifically representative. A total amount of 5 city areas in Tripoli and Misrata were assessed, all characterized by a high rate of mixed migrants’ families and individuals settled. The areas in Tripoli in which the interviews were implemented are the Old City, Abu Salim, and Krimia.
