October 21, 2015

Ambassador Edward W. "Skip" Gnehm, Director, Middle East Policy Forum, Elliott School of International Affairs, GW

Ambassador Deborah Jones, U.S. Ambassador to Libya

Ambassador Jones discusses the current situation in Libya. Does the preliminary framework agreement to resolve the conflict that has divided Libya into two competing parliaments, governments, and military coalitions offer a legitimate path toward a stable Libya? Is there a role for the international community? If the agreement isn’t viable, what solutions are there?
