Our strategy

Support Libyan efforts to protect vulnerable communities and peacefully build a secure foundation for good governance and economic opportunity.

The context

Although the fighting has stopped since the March 2011 uprising, there are still obstacles to Libya's recovery and democratization. Civil society is weak and should be strengthened to build the necessary components of good governance. The inclusion of youth and women’s voices is important as well, to ensure participatory dialogue during this critical stage of transition.

Our work

  • Economic opportunity: Providing recent graduates and young jobseekers with marketable vocational and technical skills
  • Conflict & Governance: Equipping local leaders with negotiation and conflict management tools to help promote a peaceful transition from authoritarian rule
  • Emergency response: Monitoring and responding to protection needs of vulnerable displaced populations with local institutions
