Unfinished Revolutions

This chapter finds that in Libya, Yemen, and Tunisia, the sudden removal of power structures and the changes that followed have generated profoundly polarizing issues that threaten the states’ ability to transition from dictatorship to sustainable peace and stability. While the issues vary widely and depend on the historical context and specific conditions of each country, there can be commonalities, such as the persistence of the “deep state” and the challenge of disarmament. It is critical to avoid blaming old regimes for all the problems that countries face in their transition to civil peace, a process that is not linear and can involve a lot of trial and error. The chapter argues that transitioning states must confront their challenging issues and handle them in an inclusive and transparent manner.
