Libya: Current Challenges and Future Possibilities


20 November 2019
Room S8, Petal 2, Maison de la Paix

Eight years after the 2011 uprising against the Qaddafi regime, Libyans continue to face major challenges and insecurities and are further away from any genuine reconciliation or meaningful peace processes. The recent escalation in April 2019 even provoked new rifts within and between communities with lasting socio-economic and political impacts, and added another layer of complexity to the ongoing conflict. To better understand the ongoing conflict dynamics, the transformative nature and landscape of armed groups, and the future possibilities for Libya and the Libyans, the Small Arms Survey is bringing together three of its internationally-recognized experts to reflect on and analyse the current challenges that Libya faces, and how to potentially overcome them.


  • Wolfram Lacher, Senior associate at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP)
  • Rebecca Murray, Field researcher, freelance journalist
  • Jalel Harchaoui, Research fellow, Conflict Research Unit, Clingendael Institute


  • Alaa Tartir, Researcher and coordinator of the Security Assessment in North Africa (SANA) project, Small Arms Survey

We look forward to seeing you there!
