Libya

GPG provided support to political institutions in Libya, working with the General National Congress until the summer of 2014, and then liaising with the House of Representatives (HoR) and seeking to support members in their endeavours to create a functioning parliamentary institution. GPG worked with politicians and parliamentary staff on the institution’s internal structures and rules of procedure. Given the HoR’s pivotal role in the development of Libya’s representative political structures in the transitional period, GPG’s work sought to improve the functioning of legislative committees, the role of members of parliament, parliament’s engagement with the public and the capacity of staff.

Managing Institutional Change

From 2013-2014 GPG provided support to political institutions in Libya, working with the General National Congress and then liaising with the House of Representatives, the first elected parliament in Libya in over forty years, to support MPs in their endeavours to create a functioning parliamentary institution.

Working simultaneously with politicians and parliamentary staff we delivered technical advice on developing the parliament’s internal structures and rules of procedure. Given the House of Representatives’ pivotal role in the development of Libya’s representative political structures during the transitional period, our work sought to improve the functioning of legislative committees, the role of members of parliament, parliament’s engagement with the public and the capacity of staff.
