The role of the EU in the Libyan conflict since 2011

Libya Brief

Libya is still in an open transformation process, more than a decade after the fall of Ghaddafi. Currently, two governments are once again competing for power in the Mediterranean country in Europe's immediate southern neighborhood. While Russia, Turkey and the Gulf states have gained increasing influence in Libya in recent years, the question of the EU's role and influence in the North African state often remains open. The latest article in our Libya Brief series looks at the EU's role in Libya since 2011 and argues for a more visible EU in managing the Libyan crisis.

Bundeswehr / PAO MINUSMA GAO

Deutschland sollte sein Engagement im Sahelraum ausbauen

Deutschland will sein militärisches Engagement im Sahelraum trotz vieler Rückschläge im Kampf gegen den Terror ausbauen. Der Bundestag soll diese Woche beschließen, das deutsche Kontingent für eine Blauhelm-Truppe bei der MINUSMA im krisengeschüttelten Mali um 300 auf 1400 Soldatinnen und Soldaten aufzustocken. Dazu könnten weitere Ausbilder der Bundeswehr aus der EU-Ausbildungsmission ins Nachbarland Niger umziehen, wo Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz (SPD) im Mai erwartet wird. Auch dort häufen sich die innenpolitischen Spannungen. Doch das verstärkte Engagement Deutschlands macht Sinn – die Stabilität des Sahelraums ist zentral für Europas eigene Sicherheit. Und es gilt, sich einem expandierenden Russland in der Region entgegen zu stellen.
