Chair: Sir Richard Dalton, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House
An assessment of the current challenges which define the Libyan situation, this panel discussion will focus on what is happening and why it differs from the models established by Libya's North African counterparts. The panellists will explore the international response, the questions surrounding foreign assistance to the transition, the nature and composition of the opposition, the factors which may influence the eventual outcome and the role of oil.
