NARCO RoundUp (JUL17)

Thursday, July 13, 2017


Ramadan is over just in time to segue to summer holidays in North Africa. Even so, there have been noteworthy developments across NARCO’s big buckets. Politics throughout the Maghreb remain disjointed with no common thread. In terms of security, all North African countries still face some kind of Islamic State threat. And oil? Forget global markets, it’s all local in North Africa.

Libya: Possible Restart of the Political Process
Tunisia: Youssef Chahed Playing Political Games

Algeria: The Irksome Islamic State in Algeria
Libya: The Islamic State Down But Not Out
Tunisia: The US Shifts Its Policy Approach

Algeria: Return of the Turtle
Libya: How High Can Libyan Production Go?
