Too Close for Comfort: How Algeria Faces the Libyan Conflict
The conflict that toppled former Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 has affected Algeria in various ways. As a neighbour and a regional power, Algeria has largely looked to dialogue and engagement, playing a key role in international efforts to stabilize Libya. But the chaos that often characterizes its neighbour has moved Algiers to modify some of its long-held principles to ensure its interests are protected. Too Close for Comfort: How Algeria Faces the Libyan Conflict—a Briefing Paper by the Survey's Security Assessment in North Africa (SANA) project—analyzes Algeria’s response to events in Libya and offers insight into future prospects.
