Libya's Slide Into Civil War

Libya's Slide Into Civil War: Four years ago, Libya dominated the headlines as the country struggled to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. Now, despite the fact that a country of vital importance in the region is sliding into civil war, it has all but disappeared from the news. In a new book, 'The Libyan Revolution and Its Aftermath', leading journalists, academics and specialists trace the journey from the outbreak of protests in Benghazi in February 2011 to the subsequent conflict. Some of its contributors and other experts will be present to offer an insight into what led to the current crisis and how Libya might be able to rebuild itself. The panel will be chaired by Lindsey Hilsum, international editor at Channel 4 News and author of 'Sandstorm: Libya in the Time of Revolution'.​ Taking place on 18 February, 2015 at the Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ​.
