NARCO RoundUp (JUN19)

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Travel and national holidays pushed back delivery of the June NARCO RoundUp, but better late than never. Algeria is in a surprisingly mature political transition – inching carefully forward one week at a time. Libya is still at war, which is becoming increasingly costly and threatening more and more lives directly and indirectly. And Mauritania is surprisingly dynamic, having orchestrated a largely peaceful largely democratic transition and having sidestepped the hydrocarbons sector corruption issues currently plaguing its southern neighbor.

Algeria: Gaid Salah’s Game
Libya: War Supersedes Politics
Mauritania: President-elect El Ghazouani

Algeria: Waiting for a Misstep
Libya: Human Security at Risk
Mauritania: Calm Restored

Algeria: Sonatrach Lays Low
Libya: Four Dynamics Threatening Production
Mauritania: Weathering the Storm
