Mapping Libya’s Factions

Dear friends of ECFR,

With conflicts in Libya reaching new levels of chaos, the situation on the ground resembles one of entanglement amongst militia and armed groups all fighting for control. The turmoil is often seen as too complicated to understand and too difficult to solve. Our MENA team has worked with author and analyst Mary Fitzgerald on the project ‘Mapping Libya’s Factions’. They’ve created a web publication explaining the conflict and the groups involved. You can also listen to an interview with the author, who gives her insight into what lies behind the conflict, or watch ECFR Policy Fellow, Mattia Toaldo, map the political factions and armed groups involved.
