Libya’s Political Crisis Deepens

December 29, 2021

Episode Notes:

In the fall of 2020, both sides in Libya’s civil war began a peace process which led to the creation of a nominally unified government. It was also supposed to culminate with national elections last week, on Dec. 24. The elections, however, were postponed, leaving the fate of the peace process and the current government of national unity in doubt.

To tell us why this happened and what might happen next, we’re delighted to be joined by Jalel Harchaoui. Jalel is a senior fellow at the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime. He has published widely about Libya and North Africa.
