Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the role of Libya's Islamists in the political, social and security landscape. There is also a wide range of other factors, including regionalism, tribalism and ethnic divisions, that will make it difficult for any militia or single group to gain control over large areas of Libya. It also highlights some of the unintended consequences that appear to have resulted from the 2011 foreign intervention in Libya. The chapter traces the formation of the police and military forces during the transitional period, and the genesis of the non-state armed actors that came to hold unprecedented influence over the country's security and political affairs. There are other spillover effects that are related to the overthrow of Qadhafi that are addressed.

Keywords:Islamists; Libya; political affairs; post-conflict; Qadhafi
