To support effective COVID-19 crisis communication and community outreach by the Libyan Ministry of Health and the National Centre for Disease Control, Voluntās Policy Advisory supported UNICEF in the development and implementation of a nationwide survey-based behavioral assessment in Libya.
First nationwide political poll in post-revolution Libya
Global NGO sought understanding of democracy and public opinion in Libya to support political parties, NGOs and international actors engaged in driving Libya’s democratic transition.
We administered the first nationwide, public opinion surveys, assessed the capacity of 21 potential political parties and conducted more than 24 individual and multiparty trainings.
Findings assisted in shaping up political parties to represent the population and helped them transform their media and recruitment strategy, as well as perception of UN-led dialogue process. They were also presented to donors, IOs, government agencies and published in Foreign Policy, becoming the go-to agency on Libyan politics.
On December 9, Voluntās presented the outcomes of a recent feasibility study for the establishment of a Labour Market Information System (LMIS) in Libya to Libyan government and private sector stakeholders.
Faiez Serraj and Agilah Saleh have called for a ceasefire. The implementation of elections in Libya is therefore once again on the agenda. Niklas Kabel Pedersen, Head of Voluntas Policy Advisory, provides some perspectives on potential challenges to holding national elections in Libya in the near future.
