The last issue of Insight Turkey in 2020 focused on the Libyan crisis, underscoring both promises of internal reconstruction and challenges fueled by different external actors intervening in the Libyan crisis. As a follow-up event, Insight Turkey organizes a Web Panel, featuring contributors to the fall 2020 issue who will discuss the most important current issues and the future of Libya.

The panel aims at elucidating historical roots and current aspects of the often opaque transformations and developments taking place in Libya. By bringing together four distinguished experts the panel thus aims to achieve a better understanding of the role of external actors in the Libyan crisis.
