Schooling is compulsory from 6 to 15 years of age; school attendance is free of charge. During the civil war, however, education came to a standstill in large parts of the country. The state school system is divided into primary school (6 years) and secondary school (6 years, 2 levels). The Koran schools have their own curricula (adapted to the state schools). In the higher education sector there are several state universities as well as numerous smaller private universities, vocational colleges and teacher training institutes. The largest university in the country is Al-Fateh University (1973 emerged from existing faculties of the University of Libya, founded in 1957) in Tripoli.


Press: Under the Gaddhafi regime, print media were published by the state news agency Jamahiriya News Agency (JANA, founded in 1965) or government agencies. The daily newspapers of the regime that was overthrown in 2011 gave way to new papers, which, however, have only limited circulation, including “February” (state) and “New Quryna” (Benghazi). “The Tripoli Post” (founded in 1999) and “Libya Herald” (founded in 2012, online only) are in English.

News agency: “Libya News Agency” (LANA, state), “Akhbar Libya 24 News Agency” (private).

Broadcasting: The name of the state broadcasting company LRT (founded in 1957, three programs) and the national television “Libya al-Wataniyah” are used by both the government and the counter-government. In addition, two dozen other, mostly private TV channels from Germany and abroad are received. “Libya TV” (Libya al-Ahrar TV) z. B. has been broadcasting from Doha (Qatar) since 2011. In addition to around 200 radio stations, there is also the “BBC World Service” (Arabic).


The legal system has yet to be rebuilt after the end of the Gaddhafi regime. The civil code of 1951 followed the Egyptian one and was thus indirectly influenced primarily by the French legal system. The Koran was the “law of society”. In personal, family and inheritance law (law of 1984) and from 1994 also in criminal law, Islamic law applied (Sharia). At the head of the judiciary was the Supreme Court, to which appellate courts, jury courts and courts of first instance were subordinate. There were also military courts. From 1988 there was a people’s court, which was responsible for political and economic corruption. In 2004 the abolition of the controversial people’s courts was announced. From 1969, the death penalty was imposed for offenses against the security of the state.


Libya is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world (2017: 4 residents / km 2). The majority of the population lives in the cities of the narrow coastal region, the interior of the country is largely uninhabited. Only a few Libyans still live as nomads in the desert. The proportion of the urban population is 79% (2017). The largest cities besides the capital Tripoli are Benghazi, Homs and Misurata.

Arabs and Arabized Berbers make up the majority of the population with 97%. The minorities include the Tuareg, whose core area is the Tibesti, the Tubu, Arab Bedouins and the culturally independent Berbers. The latter live in traditional tribal societies and inhabit the more favorable north (including Djebel Nefusa) and some oasis areas. In addition, a large number of foreign guest workers, mainly from neighboring Arab countries, stayed in Libya until the civil war. Most of them have since left the country. In recent years, thousands of African refugees have tried to get to Europe via Libya, taking advantage of the lack of political structures.
