Ambassador Deborah Jones
U.S. Ambassador to Libya

Libya's political transition since the fall of Muammar Qadhafi in October 2011 has combined promise and hope with divisiveness, violence and tragedy.  Succeeding Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed along with three other American officials in the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack, Ambassador Deborah Jones has led the American effort to encourage Libya's political leaders seeking national reconciliation and legitimate constitutional government. She will provide a first-hand assessment of Libya's prospects to surmount its considerable political and security challenges.

The Stimson Center is a nonprofit and nonpartisan think tank that has been finding pragmatic solutions to global security challenges for 25 years. Stimson has been honored with a MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
