Brief/ The EU as an (In)Significant Player in Libya by Jesutimilehin O. Akamo and Aude Thomas
EU currently seems not to be addressing the root causes of the Lybian crisis. In this JOINT Brief, esutimilehin O. Akamo (Research Coordinator at Institute for Peace and Security Studies – IPSS, Addis Ababa University) and Aude Thomas (Research Fellow at the Fondation pour la recherche stratégique – FRS), explain that migration, security and energy are the thematic issues that drive European countries’ policy towards Libya.
Yet, in reality, these issues fuel the damage control approach and intra-EU division. There are, however, means through which the EU can enhance its Libya policy.
