Libya: Towards a War of Attrition?

Panel Discussion in the European Parliament

In partnership with the German Marshall Fund (GMF) and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), the AJC Transatlantic Institute organized a panel discussion entitled “Libya: Towards a War of Attrition?”  

Mary Fitzgerald, a researcher and former BBC journalist in Libya, and Mohamed Eljarh, non-resident fellow with the Rafik Hariri Centre for the Middle East, were the two guest speakers for a discussion on a wide range of issues: from the country’s ongoing internal crisis, to the war between the UN-backed government of National Accord and the Libyan National Army, and what all this means for European security and migration to the continent.

Over 70 lawmakers, parliamentary advisors, EU officials, diplomats, journalists, and think tankers attended the conference in the European Parliament which Hannah Neumann, a German Member of the European Parliament from the Green Party, hosted and moderated.
