Please join the Atlantic Council for a private, off-the-record discussion on the latest developments in Libya with Hariri Center Nonresident Fellow Fadel Lamen. Lamen chairs Libya’s National Dialogue Preparatory Commission and will be in Washington to share his assessment of the current situation on the ground.
 
As results from Libya’s parliamentary elections trickle in, retired general Khalifa Haftar continues his unauthorized armed campaign against Islamists, exacerbating the political crisis gripping the country. The government continues to face severe budget constraints despite a deal to reopen critical oilfields in the east. Meanwhile, rogue elements continue to disrupt daily life as targeted assassinations and crime escalate.
 
What efforts are Libyan authorities and civil society making to keep the country’s transition toward democracy on track, and how can the international community provide assistance? Please join us as we explore these and other questions.
 
Date: Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Time: 12:30 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.
Location: Atlantic Council (1030 15th Street, NW, 12th Floor, Washington, DC 20005)
A light lunch will be served.
