Lessons from Libya

With Col. Moammar Gadhafi's government collapsing, significant challenges are ahead for Libya and for the rest of the world. Baker Institute founding director Edward P. Djerejian spoke to CNN this week about what's next and the lessons the world can learn from Libya. He also discusses what the situation might mean for Syria. Video of his interview is below.

Djerejian has also written and been quoted on Libya's political unrest:

  • Read Djerejian's the CNN op-ed "Keys to a brighter future for Libya," which addresses the prospects for the country"s future political stability as well as recommendations for U.S. policy toward Libya.
  • Read the BusinessWeek story, "Libya: Can It Become an Oil Superpower?," which quotes Djerejian on how the political transition relates to the country's future oil-production prospects.
