The project aims to address major challenges to national reconciliation in Libya, i.e. key issues regarding national governance, decentralization, national identity, security forces and transitional justice. It will identify and assess the role of law – both actual and potential, enabling and constraining - with regard to those issues. It will employ a socio-legal approach combining a legal analysis, consultations with stakeholders and interviews. It will entail conferences and workshops in Libya (or Tunisia) and the Netherlands to discuss, develop and disseminate its findings and recommendations. The project duration is 36 months divided into two phases: one year and two years. The first phase has been funded by the Netherlands Embassy in Tripoli; funding of the second phase is in preparation.
