Re-thinking Libya's Economic Conflict

Dates:
  • Wed 13 Feb 2019 09.15 - 17.30
  Add to Calendar 2019-02-13 9:15 2019-02-13 17:30 Europe/Paris Re-thinking Libya's Economic Conflict

Over the past year, there has been increasing focus on the role of the economy in the Libyan conflict, particularly the way in which widespread corruption and predation are proving an obstacle to reconciliation and political settlement. This has led to the implementation of technical measures designed to reduce this phenomenon.

This technical focus diverts attention from wider questions regarding Libya's longer-term economic vision, and what is at stake for different political actors in advancing their own economic strategies.

Taking into account Libya's turbulent pre-2011 economic history, this workshop widens the debate around economic reforms in Libya, analysing the gaps in current strategies and highlighting entry points for longer-term political and economic recovery.

This workshop is organised in the framework of the MENARA project.
