The role of the European Union in promoting Peace/State-Building in Libya

The role of the European Union in promoting Peace/State-Building in Libya
The Libyan crisis is the largest and closest crisis on the southern borders of the European Union. In the view of the above, it is therefore reasonable that the stabilization of this country and the engagement of international relations and partnership with an independent and effective government of Libya is a central point of the EU’s foreign policy since the outbreak of the crisis in 2011. In fact, as stressed also by the European Parliament, It has to be pointed out that before the fall of Gadhafi’s regime, despite his authoritarian rule, Libya had consolidated commercial and political relations with EU Member States and played a role as a partner for the EU in the Mediterranean region and in Africa, across a wide range of issues with an impact on security and stability, notably migration, public health, development, trade and economic relations, climate change, energy and cultural heritage. Furthermore, several EU Member States had individual close relations with Libya, with national companies and banks serving as a vehicle for Libyan financial investment in Europe. The consolidation of peace in Libya and to the re-establishment of such important political and economic relations is thus a fundamental interest for the European Union and its member States.
