detail - Regional Programme Political Dialogue Southern Mediterranean
This portlet should not exist anymore
Which are the most important local governance authorities in Libya? Who are the influential local figures in the country? What is the political reality of municipal councils today? How do they interact with provincial, national and/or regional power brokers? If the national-level alliances keep on failing to negotiate effective power-sharing formulas, could the future of Libya possibly be a future of city states?
These and other questions were discussed during the Libyan-Libyan dialogue event in Tunis that was organized by the KAS Regional Program Political Dialogue South Mediterranean in cooperation with the Madrid-based think tank Stractegia. The delegates discussed the municipal landscape in the country, the continuity of political divisions on city-level and possibilities for the international community to support local institutions in their efforts to stabilize Libya.
A report on the main lessons learned from the dialogue event will be published on our website soon.
