In a recently released paper titled “Rethinking Libya's Political Isolation Law" co-produced by Brookings Doha Center (BDC) and CDDRL’s Program on Arab Reform and Democracy, Roman David and Houda Mzioudet examine the controversy over Libya’s Political Isolation Law (PIL) that passed in May 2013 and its likely effects. The BDC-Stanford University Project on Arab Transitions aims to generate comprehensive analysis of the conditions affecting democratization and good governance during the period of Arab transition.
