“Foreign Affairs”: This essay of mine explains how—and driven by which geopolitical rationale—France interferes in Libya’s conflict

26 September 2017
“The Washington Post”: EU’s policy is pushing a stable Libya farther out of reach, Matt Herbert and I argue.

11 September 2017
“The Arab Weekly”: Before deploring the destructive effects of Egypt-vs.-Turkey or Qatar-vs.-UAE enmity in Libya, one must acknowledge that Italy and France oppose each other there. I talk to The Arab Weekly about EU dysfunction.

20 August 2017
“Mada Masr”: In this extensive interview, I discuss the Libyan conflict’s international dimension: France, Russia, the UAE, Algeria, et al.

31 October 2016
“The Guardian”: I speak to The Guardian about the difficulty of tackling Libya's monetary crisis.

24 July 2017
“Libération”: Trump’s blessing of the Riyadh Summit opened an avenue for France to make its backing of Haftar more overt, embracing the UAE-Egypt approach. I speak to Libé.

25 July 2017
“The Guardian”: Regardless of Colonel Nakua’s decree, I don’t see major armed groups laying down weapons, I said to The Guardian.

25 July 2017
“France Info Radio”: More recognition for Haftar means, potentially, allowing his military campaign to be pursued in west Libya. This could trigger further destabilization, I tell France Info.

25 July 2017
“France24 English”: Due to the geography of the migrant flow, France, unlike Italy, can back continuation of Haftar’s military campaign in west Libya, I tell France24.

31 July 2017
“El Watan”: It is incorrect to say that Libya’s just been a victim of foreign states since 2011. Libyan elites—too—are responsible. I speak with the daily El Watan.

12 June 2017
“Middle East Eye”: I speak to Reuters about how international polarization around Qatar impacts Libya's ongoing civil war.

26 May 2017
“Jeune Afrique”: I speak to Jeune Afrique about Tripoli-based Madkhali Salafi armed-group leader Abdelraouf Kara.

12 May 2017
“Reuters”: I speak to Reuters about the diplomatic vacuum left on Libya diplomacy by the Trump Presidency.

29 May 2017
“Middle East Eye”: As Egypt and the UAE use the Minya atrocity as an opportunity to switch from covert to overt action, the two interfering states can now bolster the aggressiveness of whatever they do in the entirety of Libyan territory, I tell MEE.

11 March 2017
“The Guardian”: I speak to The Observer about the geopolitical component of the oil deal Libya signed with Russia's Rosneft in February

15 January 2017
“Motherboard Vice”: I speak to Vice News about the crisis affecting Libya's electrical grid

07 March 2017
“Petroleum Economist”: I tell PE that the political cohesion of Libya's oil industry since September was a bit too good to be true.

02 July 2017
“Jeune Afrique”: Sanalla’s wanting to keep a unified NOC used to be called “neutrality.” Now Libya’s factions deem it very political. I talk to Jeune Afrique.
