Charge d’Affaires Wafa Bugaighis’ Speech at Carnegie

As the conflict between Libya’s political factions drags on, its humanitarian and economic crisis deepens. Meanwhile, the Islamic State is exploiting the vacuum wrought by the fighting and the absence of coherent, capable institutions. What are the prospects for a ceasefire and the formation of an inclusive, sustainable government?

At the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on April 21, 2015, Wafa Bugaighis, the charge d’affaires and highest-ranking diplomat at the Libyan Embassy in Washington, discussed her vision for ending the war and discussed how the international community can help rebuild Libya. Carnegie’s Frederic Wehrey moderated.
