Title:Terrorism and Libyan foreign policy, 1981-1986
Author:Saint John, Ronald BruceISNI
Periodical:The World Today: Chatham House Review
Geographic term:Libya
Subject:foreign policy
Abstract:The most pronounced aspect of Libyan foreign policy remains the remarkable consistencey it has displayed since the Free Unionist Officers' Movement seized power in 1969. To a large extent, this is the fundamental problem with Libyan foreign policy today. Qaddafi has refused to adapt to the changing realities of the world around him. Key elements during the period 1981-1986 were the manifest failure of Libyan policies in the Middle East and Africa, a sharp decline in oil prices, and a concerted attack by the United Stated government. As the pressure on the Qaddafi regime mounted, it became increasingly associated with international terrorism. Ref.
