Exit the Colonel: The Hidden History of the Libyan Revolution

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM


The Libyan Revolution has been framed as one of the many uprisings that began with the Arab Spring. But the real story starts a few years earlier when anti-Qaddafi sanctions were lifted and a flawed reform process ensued. What were the strategies and machinations that brought Qaddafi in from the cold and encouraged Libyans to "break the barrier of fear"? What role did regional disparities play? And what did the West get wrong?

Ethan Chorin is co-founder of the Avicenna Group, a non-profit organization working to develop urgent-care medical capacity in Libya. Chorin previously worked for the U.S. State Department, where he was posted in Libya as commercial/economic officer.

Speaker: Ethan Chorin
