March 2nd, 2005 by Administrator
At a panel entitled “U.S. – Libya Relations: Beyond Silence” on March 2, in front of an overflowing audience in the Inter-Cultural Center, Prof. Michele Dunne and Prof. Tarik Yousef discussed the future of relations between the two countries and stressed the importance of attention to political reform in Libya.
Dunne, a visiting Assistant Professor in the Arabic Dept. and editor of the Arab Reform Bulletin at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, began the event by describing the recent negotiations between Libya, the United States and Britain. She discussed the negotiations’ shift from state terrorism to weapons of mass destruction and the phased process by which the United States and United Nations have started to lift certain restrictions in return for specific Libyan acts.
