The presentation of the book (in English) will provide a great opportunity to start an in-depth analysis of issues such as: Will it be possible to achieve stable government and legislation in Libya? Which conditions would facilitate such an outcome? What influence could family relations and the army have with the various clans? What is the role played by women and young people in the peace-building process? In a territory characterized by vast distances, deserts, an unequal distribution of resources and tribal divisions, the Libyan political landscape seems increasingly unstable. The role that both Italy and Europe have in the humanitarian refugee crisis will also be discussed
