“The Libya Question” | Thursday, September 22, Ottawa

Canada’s military mission has been approved until October, but many questions remain unanswered about the UN’s goals, NATO’s operations, and the prospects for peace in Libya. Should Canada’s military mission continue, change, or cease altogether?

This event will feature a panel discussion with

  • Walter Dorn, author of Keeping Watch: Monitoring, Technology and Innovation in UN Peace Operations,
  • Peggy Mason, Senior Fellow at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) and former UN Ambassador for Disarmament and
  • Daryl Copeland, author of Guerrilla Diplomacy: Rethinking International Relations.

This Ottawa Out Front Speaker Series event is sponsored by Embassy and is part of the 2011 Ottawa Peace Festival. It will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2011, from 5:15 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., in the Colonel By Room, Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Ave. West.

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. Please email mailto:%20operations@rideauinstitute.ca%20 or call 613-565-9449 for more information.
