Assessing the Libyan Results: Inputs from MEI, Others

It's the season for analysis of the results of the Libyan elections. At Foreign Policy, Sean Kane offers "Building on Libya's Electoral Success": and at Al-Monitor, Mustafa Fetouri discusses "Why the Islamists Lost in Libya." And closer to home, the Middle East Institute asks "Is Libya Really on the Path to Democracy?", with Christopher Blanchard and Daniel Serwer, who were election monitors, and analyst Karim Mezran, in a panel discussion on Libya moderated by Ambassador David Mack, who is a frequent commenter on this blog.

It's this Thursday; details and registration info here;  if you're in the DC area (or have your LearJet fueled up), come on by.
