ONLINE EVENT: 21 March 2023, 13:30 – 14:45 (GMT), via Zoom
On 27 February 2023, the SRSG for Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, announced a new political road map for holding postponed elections after years of uncertainty and frustration.
Yet the prospects for a successful, legitimate transition to democracy hang in the balance, as the same stakeholders and institutions responsible for over a decade of human rights violations and impunity battle for power. With little progress made for accountability and the same actors threatening Libya’s future, what comes next?
To tackle this question, join Emadeddin Badi, Hanan Salah, Tarek Megerisi, Ambassador Caroline Hurndall and LFJL's Marwa Mohamed for this online event to discuss the role of the international community in learning from past mistakes and supporting a meaningful political transformation in Libya.
