Libya's Future: Constitution, National Dialogue and the Security Challenge
Elham Saudi, Director, Lawyers for Justice in Libya
John Hamilton, Director, Cross-border Information
Chair: Sir Richard Dalton, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House; British Ambassador to Iran (2002-06)
Three years on from the start of the uprisings, deteriorating security and economic conditions threaten Libya’s prospects for a successful transition. Meanwhile, international attention has drifted as Libyans continue in their struggle to build a nation.
Some support the national dialogue forum to address issues such as national reconciliation and disarmament, while others argue that new, immediate elections for the General National Congress are needed. Speakers will consider these positions and what, if anything, local actors and foreign governments can do to change the course of Libya’s transition.
This event follows a high-level roundtable discussion by Libya and industry experts exploring security, economics, internal politics and the role of the international community. The panel will draw upon the content of the sessions to assess the most effective way forward.
THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL AND REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED.
