What the UN can do to revive the political process in Libya?
By Simon Mabon
The Libyan civil war has raged on for more than 10 years since the revolution erupted in 2011. The UN mission in Libya has played a critical role in shaping the events. The policy brief traces the evolution of the UN approach to Libya and developments on the ground. It evaluates the efforts of UN envoy Stephanie Williams to conclude the Libyan transition by creating the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) which unfortunately failed to lead Libya to elections due to different reasons. The policy paper outlines several recommendations for the incoming UN envoy Abdulla Bathily that could provide a better outcome towards resolving Libya’s political stalemate.
