While security has been in the spotlight, and rightly so, another major challenge facing the Libyan government is the question of property rights.
On Monday, the General National Congress said it is working to resolve the thorny issue of property sequestered by the Gaddafi regime, but added that the complexity and sheer number of property claims made it a huge task.
Aside from cases where property was simply taken from those who were out of favour with the former government, there is also the problem of a law dating from the mid-1970s under which people living in a dwelling were considered to own it.
In the years that followed, properties may have changed hands many times, with new owners feeling they have legitimate rights to the properties they paid for.
Adding to the confusion is the fact that Libya’s main property records office burned down in the early 1980s, an event that many believe was a deliberate attempt by the authorities to muddy the waters.
Realistically, it will take years to resolve outstanding claims; it's just another of the problems that the country has to tackle.
