Libya's New Role in the World

Monday, December 12, 2011 - 19:00 to 21:00

Time: 7:00pm to 9:00pm

House of Commons, Committee Room 15

The Royal African Society, the Africa APPG and Libya-analysis.com invite you to a panel event on Libya’s New Role in the World.  Recent events in Libya have had, and will continue to have, profound impacts on the way Libya relates to the rest of the world.  This event will investigate how both Libya’s foreign policy choices and its domestic policy choices will affect the role Libya plays in the world.
How will a democratic Libya with a vibrant civil society conduct its foreign policy? Conversely, what would Libyan foreign policy look like if the country became mired in internal strife among the militias, Islamists, Old Guard, returned Diaspora technocrats, formerly unemployed revolutionaries, and nascent central authorities?  It will investigate factors such as the demise of the Gaddafi regime's interventionist policies towards sub-Saharan Africa, illegal migrants to Europe, and the funding of non-state actors, and how these will affect the international landscape.
Panellists include
Peter Henshew (Libya Analyst at the International Assessment Staff, Privy Council Office of Canada)
Reem Maziq (Private Equity Manager and co-founder of Women for Libya)
Jason Pack (Cambridge University, Libya Analysis)
Chair: Hugh Bayley - Libya Analysis
