Abstract

Foreign policy and its implementations within Libya have been a subject for extensive research, as to whether the interventions caused by these policies played a role in the continued unrest within Libya. The basis of this assumption has been related to the significant economic resources that Libya is comprised of. Thus, this presents an intriguing basis to the amount of interest Libya has received over the last decade, in comparison with its neighbours who experienced similar uprisings. Especially throughout the fragmented governance that Libya has become comprised of.

Therefore, the research question that forms the basis of this study is the following:
What has been the impact of foreign policy on the GNA’s capability to stabilise the Libyan economy? Where the aims of this research aimed to connect all variables that form the basis of the research question. These were the identification of the position of policy on government systems within Libya, the identification of the relationship between the GNA and foreign policy and the assessment of the significance of foreign policy and how its implementations affected the Libyan economy. Furthermore, qualitative interviews were used in this study due to the interpretive nature of this research and the participants involved in this study were individuals with key perspectives that signified the extents of foreign policy. They also highlighted the variables that underly foreign policy.

The findings of the interviews give an understanding as to the significance of foreign policy. The perspectives provided within the interviews highlight the ideology that foreign policy did form a significant aspect of the situations that occurred within Libya. Nonetheless, the study finds that it was a combination of all factors implemented because of the unrest that continued the vicious cycle.
