Libya: A decade of woes at dusk

Country Views

In this week’s paper, we take a look at Libya, where events have taken a remarkable turn, focusing on: 

  • The end of the five-year political deadlock with the appointment of an interim Government of National Unity (GNU) headed by Prime Minister Abdulhamid Dbeibeh. 
  • The implications of the agreement on putting forward a unified interim state budget and the Central Bank of Libya’s reforms. 
  • How the peace process could provide further stability in Libya’s oil sector, by reducing the likelihood that militias resume fighting or close down oil fields and refineries.
