About the Event
Recording of the event available here.
This conference seeks to identify the most important obstacles that encountered the political transition that began in Libya since 2011, and seeks to monitor the most important failures and their repercussions on the conditions of the Libyan nation.
This conference comes on the heels of the completion of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum to designate the executive authority in Libya. To achieve this goal, the Dialogue poses a set of questions, including:
- To what extent did the crisis result from adopting unhealthy approaches? Can it be said that part of the defect results from the negligence in adopting the formal, meta-approach and ignoring the basic approach?
- What are the issues and files that the next government should give priority to at all levels, i.e. the social level, the economic level, the human rights level, and the political level?
- To what extent can it be said that the political process led by the United Nations and the international community since 2011 has enshrined the power-sharing formula among the political class at the expense of the full participation of the Libyan nation?
- Can it be said that the formula for consensus that emerged in Geneva is a coherent formula and is characterized by resilience?
- Are there efforts to deviate from the road map and take the country towards paths that serve the interests of certain parties?
- What is the accurate diagnosis of the efforts to rebuild the state in Libya?
- How can the status of the following files be evaluated in Libya after ten years have elapsed? a)Rentierism and begging practices; b) Corruption in all its forms, including administrative corruption and clientelist and crony capitalism. Has corruption been normalized within the context of the political process that took place under the auspices of the United Nations? c) Extreme centralization.
- Is there a need for a new vision and a national compact?
The main speaker in the conference is Dr. Ahmed Al-Jehani, former Minister of Stability and Reconstruction in 2011. He will be joined by Dr. Jazia Shaiter, Professor of Criminal Law, and Professor Zahra' Langhi, an expert in peacebuilding and conflict resolution.
The conference begins at exactly six o'clock in the afternoon and continues until eight o'clock in the evening Libyan time. You can join the session through this link, and the dialogue will also be broadcast directly on Al-Wasat TV. The main sponsor of this symposium is the Libyan Experiences Forum for Peace and Development.
The conference is being held with the support of Al Wasat TV Channel and the Libyan Women's Platform for Peace.
The Libyan Expertise Forum for Peace and Development is an independent group that includes expertise in various fields and from different Libyan regions. It benefits from the experience of members to contribute to rebuilding the state of citizenship, human rights and institutions in Libya and support decentralisation and local governance, through an interactive, ground-based and knowledge approach that takes into account democratic dialogue, broad participation and positive communication.
In launching a series of online meetings, the Libyan Expertise Forum for Peace and Development seeks to provide a forum for Libyans to discuss and discuss mechanisms to achieve peace, sustainable development and support for local governance in Libya. The forum is based in its discussions on diagnosing the status quo and on exchanging experiences, lessons learned and best practices at several local and national levels.
