Eleven years after the outbreak of the civil war and the ensuing international intervention, Libya is still deeply divided and paralysed by rivalling governments and militias. After several rounds of internal fighting, and with support by the United Nations and the international community, a ceasefire agreement was signed in 2020. Presidential elections have been scheduled, but were repeatedly postponed since then.
In this virtual panel discussion, Berghof Foundation will analyse the consequences of the international intervention and the background and patterns of the conflict. The panel will assess the role of the international community today and look into opportunities and challenges for Libya’s immediate future.
