This ebook, Inside Wars: Local Dynamics of Conflicts in Syria and Libya, aims to make a contribution to the understanding of some of the under-researched local dynamics of the Syrian and Libyan conflicts. The objective is to create a new narrative of these conflicts which sheds light on their local dimensions by looking closely at the social, political, economic and religious transformations produced by the uprisings and the armed conflicts that followed. Only with a good understanding of these dynamics will it be possible to start an inclusive and meaningful process of conflict resolution and post-conflict transition.
