Libya at the crossroads. What Europe and the international community can do

Rome MED Dialogues 2021

This panel, organized in the framework of the Rome MED Dialogues, represents the final phase of the Libya Proxy War Network project, developed by the ECFR Rome Office with the support of the Regional Political Dialogue South Mediterranean of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS PolDiMed) and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. This initiative, inspired by the practice of track-two diplomacy, consisted of several closed-door meetings attended by scholars and analysts from the countries most engaged in Libya. The goal of these meetings was to shed light on the different visions and interests currently at play in the country and to find pragmatic solutions to the Libyan conundrum. The main findings and insights that emerged from the various meetings held between October 2020 and June 2021 were expanded and elaborated in a final note that explores the relevance and depth of foreign actors' involvement in the Libyan crisis and then goes through the positions of some of the main international stakeholders and finally provides some policy recommendations for the EU strategy in Libya.

Old Paths, New Riders: Transnational Organized Crime in the Maghreb-Sahel Belt

Workshop

Historically, the Maghreb-Sahel belt has been a hub of transit and trade between Sub-Saharan Africa and the Mediterranean coasts. Today, the absence of national governments both on the political and economic level, coupled with major security issues, gave room for numerous militant groups to take advantage of the prevailing vacuum in the region by sinking into a territory abandoned by the authorities with the support of a neglected local population. In parallel, numerous criminal interests managed to develop in this environment with a set of groups exploiting the opportunities presented by this disorder.
