Political, economic and cultural factors are influencing the positioning of African countries, and citizens, towards the conflict. Here’s how.
- As the UN looks to nominate its next Secretary General, Arora Akanksha, 34, is running a self-built campaign for the post.
- The UN-sponsored Geneva talks have led to a new unity cabinet led by Abdul Hamid Dbeibah. Challenges ahead and unconvincing first moves.
- Twenty-five years later, the phantom of nationalism has not disappeared, in the Balkans just like in Europe
- Two presidents of the Libyan Central Bank (each one printing its own bills), practically two national oil companies with two distinct policies for the management of oil resources, two governments, and two parliaments. Despite the UN’s efforts, the contending Libyan parties have no yeat reached an accord, isn’t the road of dialogue and diplomacy leading to a stalemate?
- In recent days the UNHCR has invited donor countries to provide the necessary financial assistance needed for humanitarian aid in Libya and neighbouring countries. In the meantime it continues to work with local agencies on the shores of the Mediterranean. In some cases work also consists of searching for people who have taken to the sea and for whom all trace has been lost.
