Libya: why Europe cannot renounce to its role

Since early 2015, peace negotiations have occurred irregularly between representatives of the Libyan institutions in Tripoli and Tobruk, while fighting continued. These political initiatives have not resulted in a permanent ceasefire due to several factors. Key factors include local spoilers refusing to commit to the peace process, national institutions lacking the power to impose their authority on controlled territories, and external powers interfering in internal affairs. In August a new ceasefire has removed the sense of impending conflict and could open up space for a revived political process. The political leaders of east and west Libya have effectively signed up to a UN plan for a demilitarised zone (DMZ) around the contested city of Sirte. In recent weeks many diplomatic initiatives overlap but Europe seems to play a secondary role.
How can the EU contribute to a lasting solution to the crisis that is in its own interest?
