William Lawrence, North Africa Project Director at the International Crisis Group
Libya and Tunisia should implement transitional justice, not a justice of exclusion, argues Dr. William Lawrence, North Africa Project Director for the International Crisis Group. Lawrence speaks to France 24 about the potentially destructive effects of Libya’s Isolation Law – aimed at purging Gaddafi-era officials – and about a similar legal project that’s being prepared in Tunisia.
Lawrence also touches on the power of anti-government militias in Libya and Tunisia and the consequences for security in the Maghreb.
