Libya, Towards a War of Attrition

Four months after Khalifa Haftar and his Libyan National Army (LNA) began the offensive on Tripoli to seize control of the capital from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA), Western Libya is caught in a war of attrition. The conflict has become bogged down in a stalemate on the capital's outskirts. The involvment of external forces has further fueled the conflict. Whilst the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, have supported the LNA's military activities, Turkey, and Qatar have supported the GNA and helped the UN-backed government resist Haftar's territorial offensives. With France supportive of the LNA and Italy siding with the GNA, there has been no common EU position. UN-backed plans for elections to install a new government overseeing all of Libya have so far failed, and it remains unclear whether any of the country's well-armed factions would respect any results. According to the WHO the new conflict has left 1,093 people dead and 120,000 displaced and provoked sharp rifts within and among communities in western Libya, and deepened the divide between the eastern and western parts of the country. What are the prospects for Libya's conflict? What is the potential impact of a Libyan war of attrition on Europe? What is the role of the EU and its member states in potentially ending the conflict?

by Romina Liesel Elbracht, Justin Bankemper

The second roundtable discussion organized by the Forum for Strategic Initiatives and the KAS India Office along with CENJOWS, CLAWS, CAPS, KIF and NMF, shifted its focus from an inherent Indian issue in the last meeting, towards an issue that attracts regional and global attention. Afghanistan, a state that has been in a challenging and difficult position for years, was the focal point as the situation there has regional and global implications.
