The project asks how the traditional/tribal authorities engaged in local governance in Libya, Mali, and Niger, where statehood is limited, build and maintain legitimacy. By doing so, the project focuses on how these authorities can be constructively involved in stabilisation processes and what that would require in terms of engagement by the international community. The research thus aims to inform (inter)national interventions in these countries on the consequences for supporting (formal) local government by producing practical recommendations.
