The main body of the research analyzed existing documents on the Libya intervention and NATO's strategic shifts in the post-cold war era. Another focus was the review of literature on the changes in policy and actions of China and Russia after the intervention and to assess to what extent these changes could be attributed to the NATO intervention. Furthermore, I reviewed primary sources of information such as articles, blogs and interviews by/with members of the US foreign policy establishment before, during and after the time of the intervention.
