Abstract

This chapter examines the conflict resolution initiatives by the diaspora communities during the Libya uprising in 2011. In collaboration with their fellow citizens in the country, organisations like the Libya Outreach Group established online initiatives that provided an unsanctioned dialogical engagement that challenged state media, which were then ideologically slanted towards the Gaddafi regime’s propaganda project. These online activities sourced news from Libya and processed it extraterrestrially for distribution back into the country and internationally giving an impetus to an insurgence by the pro-democracy forces that linked with the masses at home and with the international media abroad to generate a dialogue that addressed political, social and economic conflicts in the land. This eventually led to a new political dispensation in the country.
