On Friday, April 29, USLBA hosted a productive roundtable with senior USG officials and leaders from the US private sector to discuss the implementation of the Global Fragility Act in Libya to prevent conflict and promote stability. The meeting included Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations Deputy Assistant Secretary, Matthew Steinhelfer; USAID’s Deputy Assistant Administrator for the Middle East, Megan Doherty; and Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Deputy Assistant Secretary for North Africa, Karen Sasahara. USLBA is grateful for their time and invaluable insights.
The Global Fragility Act is a forward-thinking strategy that aims to address many of the underlying factors of instability in Libya. USLBA looks forward to future engagements that promote our shared goals of conflict prevention, stabilization, and support for Libya’s youth and disadvantaged populations.
