Situation

Global NGO sought understanding of democracy and public opinion in Libya to support political parties, NGOs and international actors engaged in driving Libya’s democratic transition.

Solution

We administered the first nationwide, public opinion surveys, assessed the capacity of 21 potential political parties and conducted more than 24 individual and multiparty trainings.

Outcome

Findings assisted in shaping up political parties to represent the population and helped them transform their media and recruitment strategy, as well as perception of UN-led dialogue process. They were also presented to donors, IOs, government agencies and published in Foreign Policy, becoming the go-to agency on Libyan politics.

These challenges are especially exacerbated amongst refugee women. As such, changing perceptions and attitudes, and ensuring vulnerable women and girls have access to opportunities is a long-term effort, which can only be achieved by involving local stakeholders and civil society organizations currently playing an active role in the development of their communities and their country.
