NARCO RoundUp (JAN 2016)
After a brief hiatus, NARCO is pleased to resume its monthly NARCO RoundUp covering Politics, Security and Oil in North Africa.
On the political front, this month’s RoundUp looks at the uncertain fate of Libya’s Government of National Accord, the collapse of Nidaa Tounes’ parliamentary bloc, and the prospect of constitutional reform in Algeria. North Africa also witnessed significant security developments with attacks on Libya’s oil sector, arrests of terrorists in Algeria, and widespread rioting in Tunisia. Finally, Libya’s assessment of its oil sector is becoming more realistic, Algeria is starting to pivot, and Tunisia’s regulatory environment is still stalling.
