POST-ELECTION LIBYA AND THE EUROPEAN UNION (EU)
To Register: click here
Libya was expected to hold its parliamentary and presidential elections in December 2021 and January 2022. The elections were postponed, and the parliament has not set a new date. The fragmented nature of Libya’s geopolitical context encourages the need to reflect on the extent to which the EU’s agenda for Libya is fit-for-purpose. On this premise, panellists will engage the following questions:
- What is the situation concerning the election in Libya, and how does it impact the priorities and methods of EU mediation efforts?
- Should the priorities and methods of the EU within the Libyan context change? If yes, why and from what to what?
- What gaps and opportunities can be anticipated and mitigated or leveraged?
