Gambia Name Change Reversal

Last year we reported on how the Gambia, a tiny country located along the banks of a river in West Africa, had changed its official name at the UN. The country's maverick dictator had decided in 2015 to switch from "Republic of The Gambia" to "Islamic Republic of The Gambia".

What is the Commonwealth of Nations?

The Commonwealth of Nations (formerly the "British Commonwealth") is a loose association of countries that grew out of the British Empire as its colonies transitioned into independent countries during the 20th Century. It more or less took its modern form in 1949, but its history goes back at least to 1926, when the most Westernized colonies of the British Empire were transitioning towards independence. It's mostly a casual forum for cooperation between countries that used to be British colonies or dependencies (though some other countries have joined), and has a charter promoting values like world peace, democracy, and human rights.

Libya control map: Shows detailed territorial control in Libya's civil war as of April 2017, including all major parties (Government of National Accord (GNA); Tobruk House of Representatives, General Haftar's Libyan National Army (LNA), Zintan militias, Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG); Tripoli GNC government, Libya Dawn, and Libya Shield Force; Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries and other hardline Islamist groups; and National Salvation Government). Now includes terrain and major roads. Colorblind accessible. After driving so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS/ISIL) fighters out of their last stronghold in Libya, clashes have gradually increased between the country's two rival governments, even as the eastern government has continued its unilateral campaign against religious hardliners, and a new "neutral" military force has emerged with ties to the ousted leader of the previous western government.
 
See all this and more on the latest update to PolGeoNow's concise, professional Libyan Civil War control map, which comes with a timeline of changes since our September 2016 Libya map report.
