zenith Briefing on Libya and the Arab Spring

A Libyan Decade

zenith-Briefing: Ein libysches Jahrzehnt

How did Libya’s society change during the last ten years? What are the prospects of a political consensus to stop the war? How do regional conflict and local dynamics in different parts of the country align?

Which diplomatic initiatives are most promising and why? And how do Libyans imagine the future of their state and their society? We discussed these and more questions with:
