    This policy update’s Special Focus covers the extension of Operation Sophia without naval assets, which raises questions regarding the future of Search and Rescue (SAR) activities in the Mediterranean and has been strongly condemned by civil society organisations. NGO SAR activities continue to be blocked and migrants are stranded on boats, barred from docking at European harbours. With the EU further decreasing its involvement in SAR activities and member states unable to share responsibility for migrants, crossing the Mediterranean is likely to become ever more dangerous.
