This event launched a report on the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood by ICSR Research Fellow Inga Kristina Trauthig.
As the political future of Libya is uncertain, various groups are competing for power and legitimacy. This report tackles the most important global movement of political Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood, and looks at it from a local perspective. It traces and explains the history of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, before examining how the movement has tried to establish itself as a legitimate political actor with regards to its Islamic credentials in the Libyan political sphere after 2011.
Expert analysis was provided by the author of the report, as well as Emadeddin Badi, Non-resident Scholar at the Middle East Institute.
