Abstract

Libya is gaining a higher priority as a center of new Islamic State (IS) activity, a sort of terrorist safe heaven, exporter of refugees and a breeding ground for criminals and trafficking in persons. This study of the U.S. strategy in Libya for counter terrorism and counter insurgency, argues that the United States, with its allies and regional partners, is still assessing the security situation and that a long debate is taking place in Washington to consider the options for future engagement in Libya, with two parallel goals: to support the emergence of unified and capable national governance and reduce transnational threats posed by Libya’s instability and Libya-based terrorists.
