For the period of 1 July to 7 August 2018, there were 64 critical incidents affecting Libya’s stability rating. Those incidents resulted in at least 18 deaths and 1,004 arrests. As a result, the MEA Risk Incidents Index (or Instability Index) for the period was 1.90. The index measures the extent of the instability on a scale of 0.5 to 5, where 0.5 means the country or region are risk free, and 5 means the region qualifies as a failed state and must be avoided. On the instability scale, Libya remains a High-Risk Zone, as indicated in the graphics within the report posted below. Although violence remains elevated, Human & Social-related incidents accounted for 28.13% of the period’s total incident pool, highlighting the major social and human issues that the Libyans are confronting on the daily basis.
