This thesis is revolved around three main inquiries. Firstly, the types of the three Libyan ceasefires, the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA), the Palermo Conference Conclusions and the Permanent Ceasefire of Libya, are examined. The examination was made with three sections structured by Malin Åkebo, (i) initiation, (ii) form and content and (iii) implementation and unfolding of the process. Then, how the ceasefires have influenced the peace processes of 2015, 2018, and 2020 and how the peace processes have influenced the ceasefires are scrutinised. To comprehend the dynamics of this reciprocal relation, six factors of influence, recognition, trust, claims, international involvement, contextual changes, and intra-party dynamics, are taken into consideration. It has been found as a result of the analyses that the LPA and the Palermo Conclusions have derailed the Libyan Peace Process while the Permanent Ceasefire agreement brought a peaceful change to the process.
