Editorial Policy

At Libya Desk, our editorial standards are grounded in a robust methodological approach aimed at providing our audience with accurate, insightful, and balanced content on Libya's current affairs.

Here's an overview of our editing standards and methodology:

Editorial Process

Our editorial team convenes weekly and monthly to review news, share analysis, and develop a comprehensive understanding of Libya's social, economic, security, and political landscape. Leveraging the wealth of data and information produced by Libya Desk, and a widespread network on the ground, we ensure our content is fact-checked and informed by the most up-to-date insights.

Content Development

We prioritize producing informative, nuanced, and compelling content that reflects realities on the ground. Our team conducts in-depth brainstorm sessions to design content strategies aligned with our editorial goals. Additionally, daily and weekly news meetings facilitate information follow-up, ensuring our content is always relevant and timely.

Core Values

Our methodological approach is governed by four core values:

  1. Impartiality: We maintain neutrality and objectivity in our editorial decision-making process.
  2. Neutrality: We strive to present information without bias or agenda, allowing our audience to form their own opinions.
  3. Do No Harm: We prioritize ethical reporting practices, ensuring our content does not exacerbate conflict or harm any individual or community.
  4. Confidentiality: We uphold the confidentiality of our sources and protect sensitive information with the utmost care.

Data Collection

We rely on a combination of primary and secondary data sources to inform our editorial process. Primary data collection methods include key-informant interviews (KIIs), focus group discussions, and surveys, complemented by extensive desk research. Our proprietary database, containing over 5 years of weekly analysis on Libyan developments, allows us to triangulate findings and ensure the accuracy of our information.
