CIC-Ottawa Branch: Libya After Gadhafi - Canada's International Role
Tuesday, September 27, 2011 from 5:15 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
The National Capital Branch of the Canadian International Council presents
Libya After Gadhafi - Canada's International Role
expert on security, University of Ottawa;
Libyan Chargé d’Affaires;
pre-eminent lawyer and author, University of Ottawa;
As Rebel Forces speed towards the last strongholds of Muammar Gadhafi’s power, the Libyan National Council, chaired by former Justice Minister Mustafa Abdel Jalil faces the challenges of establishing political authority and re-establishing the machinery of government and civil power.
Please join our outstanding panel of experts in examining the issues at this timely and exciting opening speaker event of the fall season:
A renowned expert on security, the Middle East and two-track diplomacy, Peter Jones served as senior security and intelligence analyst in the Privy Council Office. He continues to advise Foreign Affairs and Defence, and will assess where events in Libya sit within the context of the overall Arab Spring, where the region as a whole is going, and what that means for Canada and the West.
Libyan Chargé d’Affaires appointed by the National Transitional Council to the Libyan Embassy in Ottawa. He will provide insight into the chaotic transition to normal diplomatic relations and some hints on evolving relations with Canada during Libya’s march to liberation.
Pre-eminent lawyer and author, Mendes is a Visiting Professional at the International Criminal Court, an advisor to the United Nations and practiced as a human rights Tribunal member in Canada. He will address the military intervention in Libya as an example of the emerging doctrine of R2P, or Responsibility to Protect - when a state fails to protect its own citizens and triggers the responsibility of the international community to engage in actions to protect civilians. He will also comment on bringing Gadhafi to justice under the UN Resolution and to the International Criminal Court.
