  • Conclusion.
This book sketches the discourse about a new constitution in Libya since 2011. Applying a discourse analytical approach, the author identifies societal cleavages that have come to the fore in Libya's transitional period. The debate has focused on democracy, federalism, decentralisation and localisation, the role of religion, women in politics as well as ethnic minorities. The strategies followed to ensure representation in the constitutional process have included civil disobedience, affirmative action and force. The effects of raising demands in these ways have been changes in the constitutional process and institutional design of Libya's interim political institutions rather than promises that particular demands as to the content of the constitution would be met. The general prevention of a public discourse and competition along societal cleavages under Gaddafi's totalitarian ideology has resulted in an all-out resurgence of splits along ethnic, regional and other lines.The work was awarded the Christoph Schumann Memorial Prize of the University of Erlangen.

"When rebel forces overtook Tripoli in August 2011, prison doors were opened and office files exposed, revealing startling new information about Libya's relations with other countries. One such revelation, documented in this report, is the degree of involvement of the United States government under the Bush administration in the arrest of opponents of the former Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi, their subsequent torture and other ill-treatment in US custody, and their forced rendition to Libya. Delivered into Enemy Hands: US-Led Abuse and Rendition of Opponents to Gaddafi's Libya is based on Human Rights Watch interviews with more than a dozen former members of an anti-Gaddafi Libyan Islamist group who, after September 11, 2001, were swept up in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia and sent back to Libya, mostly between 2004 and 2006. At the time, the United States and the United Kingdom were trying to transform Gaddafi from foe to ally. The report also documents allegations of torture and other serious ill-treatment committed by US personnel in US secret detention sites in Afghanistan. These include a newly reported case of waterboarding and another case of similar water torture. The report also details the mistreatment of these men back in Libya, where they endured solitary confinement, other abuses, and long prison sentences following unfair trials. Human Rights Watch calls on the US, the UK, and other governments involved in these renditions to investigate the alleged abuses. The US should provide a full accounting of its extensive secret detention program, enable victims to obtain redress, and prosecute those responsible for authorizing the mistreatment"--P. [4] of cover.
"This report is based on interviews conducted in Libya with 14 former detainees, most of whom belonged to an armed Islamist group that had worked to overthrow Gaddafi for 20 years. Many members of the group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), joined the NATO-backed anti-Gaddafi rebels in the 2011 conflict. Some of those who were rendered and allegedly tortured in US custody now hold key leadership and political positions in the country"--Publisher's website.

This is a study of the way in which various courts in Libya deal with questions of divorce in an almost exclusive tribal, still nomadic, environment. The author explains how local divorce law is a blend of statutory, Islamic, and customary law. By investigating all the varieties of marriage dissolution recorded in the "sijjilat" of the "shari'a" courts of Ajdabiyya and Kufra and by analyzing the part played, respectively, by "shari'a" law, customary law and some compromise between the two, he provides hard evidence on the nature of compromise on one point after another. The principles are by no means confined to the localities that are examined here in such meticulous detail. Much light is thrown on the way in which the authority of "shari'a" law habitually thought to impinge on tribal or local customs in sixth areas, on the one hand, and low Muslim courts, on the other hand, to try to adopt the principles of the "shari'a" to the exigencies of the local situation.
