Nel 2021 il mondo è rimasto con il fiato sospeso. Mentre le campagne vaccinali alimentavano speranze, l’emergere di nuove e insidiose varianti si è sommato alla crisi delle catene di distribuzione globali e all’inizio di un periodo di alta inflazione. Nel frattempo, l’arrivo di Biden alla Casa Bianca è stato contrassegnato da luci e ombre: cambiamenti, certo, ma con molti distinguo e non sempre nella direzione sperata dalle opinioni pubbliche europee.

It is possible to define the modern political history of Libya as a compromise. A compromise that began during the Idris monarchy which decided to come to terms with Western nations, and that continued between the king and the country's tribal realities. During Gaddafi's devastating 42-year regime, the rais leveraged favoritism, corruption, and atavistic hatreds to keep his citizens together, giving nothing in return if not an artificial, hyper-centralized state body for the benefit of a small elite, and one that obviously could not survive him.
Libya is situated in the North African region with climatic conditions that are influenced by the Mediterranean Sea in the north and the Sahara Desert in the south; resulting in abrupt weather transitions. Libya is considered the world’s ninth country in terms of oil reserves. Over 90 percent of its source of water originates from fossil groundwater aquifers. In addition, the country doesn’t have any rivers, while the surface run-offs are considered limited due to low rainfall rate.
It is an acquired truth that Libya as a country, or better, a single entity did not come into being until 1934. Back then, the regions that composed Libya were assembled by the newly appointed Italian governor Italo Balbo into one whole unit to be administered. This period was cut short by Italy’s defeat in WWII: the country’s “liberation” resulted in its splitting into different areas, each under a European country’s mandate.
