This paper is a summary of the discussions during the sixth Libya Working Group meeting, convened at Chatham House in May 2012, to consider policy suggestions and recommend action points for the international community with regard to the future of Libya, with a particular focus on the establishment of the rule of law.
The discussion was divided into three sessions. The first session aimed to set out the current situation as a framework for understanding the rule of law in Libya. The overview examined key elements such as security, politics, the economy, public expectations and efforts at re-establishing the state. The second session explored the challenges of reinstating the rule of law. The third session explored issues of criminal justice and reconciliation.
