Cyber-Geopolitics and the Future of Conflict in the Middle East and North Africa

Expert Workshop

Over the last decade, cyber space has developed into a major theatre for competition and conflict, also in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Cyber geopolitics and digital proxy warfare arguably re-shape regional conflict dynamics and alter power balances between states and non-state actors with asymmetrical military capabilities. Cyberattacks on civilian and military targets, disinformation campaigns and data leakages are daunting challenges with fierce consequences. Yet, governments and security institutions as well as private companies and civil society organizations in the region do not seem prepared in terms of strategies and capabilities to deal with this new dimension of conflict.

Stabilizing the War-Torn Economy in Libya

Policy Recommendations for EU Action

Finding sustainable solutions to stabilise the economy in Libya requires a holistic approach as the key economic issues link into all different aspects of the Libyan conflict. Economic realities cannot be dealt with in isolation from the political process and the highly complex security architecture in the country.

Strengthening Migration Reporting in Libya

Training of Trainers

The majority of African migration towards Europe for the past few years was channeled through one single country – Libya. Fact-based and conflict-sensitive reporting on irregular migration and the conditions for migrants and refugees in the country requires a comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon and its causes and effects as well as the complex legal framework.

Arab Police Reform: Between Citizens and Security


Police forces in the Southern Mediterranean region have witnessed a growing deterioration of their conditions and an increasing fragmentation while operating in gradually more volatile environments and being caught up in tensions between their relationship to the state and the population. The relationship between Arab populations and their security forces are an essential vector for stability in the region.

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


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.
