Libya Politics & Security
Libya Politics & Security digs into the details of the country’s diplomatic and military battles, while assessing what the outcomes of war and diplomacy might be.
Whilst its monthly sister publication, Libya Focus, uses its monthly perspective to sit back and take stock, Libya Politics & Security provides a weekly evaluation and analysis of events within the country’s political, economic, and security spheres as they happen.
As well as explaining the shifting alliances and rivalries on the ground, our author is an experienced diplomat who takes into account the international discussions surrounding peace talks and intervention.
At 3,000-4,000 words, Libya Politics & Security examines the implications of fast-moving issues with long-term implications, such as the challenge of Islamist extremism or the status of critical energy infrastructure. Where loyalties can come down to the level of individual cities, and are often divided between them, this publication offers a dedication to the details that will define the country’s future.
