Research includes work on the ongoing struggle for power in the country, and how this relates to international law.

Libya suffers from an interlinked political, security and economic crisis that is weakening state institutions, damaging its economy, and facilitating the proliferation of non-state armed groups. 

The state’s fragmentation has provided a fertile environment for the development of a pervasive war economy, which is highly damaging for the future of the state. Libya’s Conflict Economy is a major project which seeks to map and understand this development and examines how it is undermining peace efforts and fuelling state disintegration.
