“Libya’s Turbulent Transition: the pressing need for security reform sector” by Barah Mikail, ACM.

SUMMARY

  • The fall of the Gaddafi regime left a security vacuum in Libya that was filled by dozens of militias loosely classified into two opposing camps: the revolutionaries and the “establishment.
  • The current government has been unable to implement a clear plan for security sector reform, as militias in both camps have resisted government-led integration initiatives. Libya’s insecurity has affected the country’s progress on other fronts, particularly on issues of democracy and governance as well as economic growth.
  • Though the international community has marshalled considerable resources in support of Libya’s security sector, the U.S. should encourage greater coordination between donors and follow-up on pledges.
