In this attempt, the paper seeks to explore these questions and make analysis based on some findings and observations to these questions. (i) What was the role played by the Africa Union (AU) and to what extent was it effective (ii) What was the reason behind the R2P and its effects on Libya And (iii) why did the United Nations intervene in Libya but failed to do so in Syria The author also gives some explanations on how intervention reflect on local governance, security, and the rise of terrorist groups in Libya.
