Summary:

The escalation of Libya’s civil war saw Europeans scrambling to regain the initiative. Following the 2011 NATO campaign led by France and the UK that removed Colonel Muammar Gaddafi from power, member-states tried but failed to stabilise Libya, and the country was embroiled in civil strife since mid-2014. The conflict escalated as actors ranging from the UAE and Egypt to Russia and Turkey became increasingly involved, while European efforts to broker peace were incoherent and ineffective. The conflict risks triggering a new wave of refugees and leading to a revival of the Islamic State.
