Addressing and counteracting the destabilizing effects that the situation in Libya has on the Sahel region
The fall of Gaddafi’s regime and his death did not bring stability to Libya. Instead, the country is experiencing very strong separatists movements backed up by militia and rising influence of the Al-Qaeda in the region. The new government is incapable of solving these problems. Meanwhile the entire Sahel region is dependent on Libya’s situation. If it fails to restore the governmental influence and improve the economy, it will intensify the instability that is gathering in the region, creating a very serious threat to international peace and security. Therefore, delegates should access the situation at hand and try to find ways of improving it.
All simulations are open both to public to observe and to participate. If you would like to participate as a delegate please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be assigned a country.
