NARCO RoundUp (October 2016)

Sunday, November 6, 2016

At NARCO, we love Halloween, so the October NARCO RoundUp celebrates the Halloween spirit.

  • Politics explores the theme of zombie governments and presidents who are “not dead yet.”
  • Security looks at the fate of the Islamic State in Libya – where are all the corpses? We revisit Mokhtar Belmokhtar, simultaneously dead and alive (!), and in Tunisia we highlight on going ties between al-Qaeda in Algeria and its affiliate in Tunisia.
  • Oil argues that Libya’s oil recovery is an unsustainable freak event, highlights how Algeria got its mojo back, and showcases the collapse of Tunisia’s extractives industry.
