After the fall of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan government split into two factions, resulting in an armed conflict between both sides and their allies. The country is now experiencing a complete lack of security and escalation of violence due to the increasing number of actors aided by their private militias. Escalating violence, as well as the absence of security and governance, have had a detrimental impact on the country’s oil sector. Only a few oilfields are still operational and some of them are exposed to high levels of risk. How important and crucial is the oil sector in Libya from a gepolitical point of view? Can The oil sector be considered as an important source of stability in a troubled country like Libya?

Christopher Stevens and three other Americans citizens.This event is now seen under a twofold perspective: the US role in the transition phase of newly elected governments and what kind of punishment to the perpetrators. As for the latter, according to some sources, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) is gathering intelligence instrumental to prepare the list of targets, prerequisite to government green light to the relevant operation. The purpose of this essay is to focus on the possible use of drones in the Libyan desert
