Jason Pack

President of Libya-Analysis®


The Trump Administration has largely ignored the protracted conflict in Libya, attempting to outsource its resolution to our European allies. Yet, the fallout from the multiyear civil war -- which ignited three years after the fall of former Libyan dictator Muammar Qadhafi -- has major implications on Western geostrategic interests throughout the Mediterranean basin. Libya is an area of commercial, military, and diplomatic competition: oil firms, militias, jihadists and the major Gulfi and European powers all have their proxies in the country.

Visiting Denver to answer these crucial concerns is Jason Pack. His presentation will discuss the inception of the current crisis, Libya’s militias, the Islamic State’s presence, the migrant crisis and what US policy towards these interlocking issues should be.
