The chapter “European Union Activities in Libyan Post-revolution Environment: The Triad—Migration, Security, and EU Special Agencies” looks at the activities of the European Union and relations between the European Union and post-revolutionary Libya. Libya has an interesting and complicated history – from gaining its independence from Italy in 1947, having a constitutional and hereditary monarchy under King Indris, later going through Al Fateh Revolution and Muammar Gaddafi dictatorship between 1951 and 2011, experiencing the Arab Spring in 2011, which became a civil war between forces loyal to Gaddafi and those opposing him and then going into post-Gaddafi era. After all the events, the country’s transition is still incomplete, if not failing – domestic threats, immigration, proxy conflicts, and constant struggles for power still destabilize the country.
