From the veterans of the 1980s war in Afghanistan to those who flocked to post-invasion Iraq or Syria after 2011, jihadism in Libya today brings together several currents and histories. Who are the key actors and groups within Libya’s jihadist milieu? Which social roots helped birth them? And which generational divides could shape them in future?
