NARCO RoundUp (JUL18)

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

July was topsy-turvy in North Africa with changes all around. Whether those changes amount to anything or they simply mark time is another question entirely. In Algeria, the security services were extensively overhauled. In Libya, more of the same: no political process; terrorism; spikey oil production. In Mauritania, Ould Abdelaziz’s term is coming to an end, the security situation is more dire, and oil activity is ramping up.

Algeria: Sweeping Changes to the Security Services
Libya: The Spinning Wheel of Futility
Mauritania: The Home Stretch

Algeria: The Operational Impact of Security Sector Changes
Libya: Punch; Counterpunch
Mauritania: Nouakchott Gets in the Game

Algeria: Ould Kaddour Rolls Out the Red Carpet
Libya: Win Some; Lose Some
Mauritania: Fish and the Big Turtle
