  • Podcast on the security situation in Libya (February 2021) [MP4

In this podcast, EASO interviews Mr. Emadeddin Badi to address questions related to the security situation in Libya. The COI needs addressed in the interview were identified in consultation with COI experts in EU Member States who responded to a request of input sent by EASO. Moreover, the information provided in the podcast must be read in conjunction with the EASO Query Response on the security situation in Libya published on 7 December 2020, which constitutes the research basis for the podcast and in which more detailed information can be found. 

The podcast was recorded on 1 February 2021, and during the quality control phase, significant developments in Libya took place.  On 5 February 2021, the UN-led Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) elected Mohamed al-Mnefi as head of the Presidential Council and Abdelhamid Dabeiba as Prime Minister.  The Tobruk-based House of Representatives is yet to grant confidence to the new Government of National Unity. 

We hope you will find the podcast useful and we would be happy to receive your feedback.
