Libya: a happy ending that wasn't
Speaker(s): Dr Florence Gaub
Chair: Professor Toby Dodge
Recorded on 3 February 2014 in New Theatre, East Building.
The lecture will cover post-2011 Libya and ask key questions related to post-conflict reconstruction, security sector reform and transitional justice. What can we learn for future cases of regime change? How can security be built without external security provision? What are the factors that facilitate or impede political transitions?
