Societal impact of the conflict economy in Libya

This event explores the societal nature and impact of the Libyan conflict economy and discusses the available avenues for addressing these dynamics.

Research event, Webinar
29 March 2022 — 2:00PM TO 3:00PM

Since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in 2011, significant attention has been paid to analysing Libyan conflict dynamics and challenges of post-revolutionary state-building. However, comparatively little attention has been paid to the exploration of economic drivers of conflict in Libya.

This webinar, co-hosted by the Peaceful Change initiative (PCi) and Chatham House, will launch PCi’s new report, Unpacking the impact of conflict economy dynamics on six Libyan cities. This report presents recommendations on how livelihoods and broader development programming can tackle conflict economy dynamics. Panellists will assess the findings of the PCi paper in relation to policy implications in Libya, and the impacts of transnational conflict and coping supply chains.

This event was developed with support from the Cross-Border Conflict: Evidence, Policy and Trends (XCEPT) project, funded by UK Aid from the UK government and the report launched at this event was produced as part of the ‘Social Peace and Local Development’ project, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
