Search in Libya

Violent conflict in Libya continues at alarming levels. Deep political and social rifts pose challenges to national reconciliation, while security risks grow and the number of internally displaced people has increased since 2014. To confront these issues, we are working with Libyan activists and leaders, both inside Libya and in neighboring Tunisia, to equip them with the skills to build a future of inclusion and democracy for their country. Our work focuses on supporting local civil society organizations, building their conflict mediation capacities, and networking them to other civil society actors and international community representatives. We have also worked on building better relationships between media professionals and security forces, by organizing dialogue workshops on journalism safety in Libya.
