Panel Discussion: Libya After the Qaddafi Regime


Location: Hesburgh Center Auditorium

Recent events in Libya have raised many questions about the implications of the NATO international intervention. What were the costs and consequences of the intervention? Was it an example of "humanitarian" intervention, of Responsibility to Protect (R2P)? Is this a precedent for the future? Will Syria or Yemen be next? Should NATO be intervening in areas outside the Euro-Atlantic community? Is there need for a more police-oriented human security intervention capability under United Nations auspices, as Bob C. Johansen, Mary Kaldor, and others have advocated? This panel features: George A. Lopez, Hesburgh Chair in Peace Studies Mary Ellen O’Connell, research professor of international dispute resolution David Cortright, director of policy studies

The panel will be moderated by Atalia Omer, assistant professor of religion, conflict, and peace studies. This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies
