This research paper aims to study the role of the clan and its importance within modern trends as a mechanism for settling conflicts within the state. The researcher will focus on the importance and role of the clan in alleviating the conflicts that may occur as a result of the killings and accidents leading to death. The researcher will also follow the qualitative approach by interviewing clan’s elders (8 elders from various clans) in Libya.
The results of this study indicate that the role of the clan cannot be dispensed with in resolving conflicts and disputes between individuals and parties. It is also almost impossible to resolve the trends through the clan and the clan elder in the twenty first century more important than the civil courts and government authorities due to the characteristics of Libyan society which is characterized by society where the clan customs and traditions inherited from parents and grandparents.
