Chairman of LIAS Attends World Economic Forum 2015

Dr. Aref Nayed, Chairman of the Libyan Institute for Advanced Studies, has been invited to participate at the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2015 in Davos, Klosters, Switzerland.

The World Economic Forum is an international Institution committed to improving the state of the world through public-private cooperation. The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting convenes global leaders from across business, government, international organizations, academia and civil society in Davos for strategic dialogues which map the key transformations reshaping the world.

Dr. Nayed will be participating in two sessions at WEF.  Dr. Nayed will be taking part in a closed-door consultative session on Libya on Thursday, January 22, and a public and webcasted session entitled ‘Regions in Transformation: the Arab World’ on Friday, January 23. The latter session also include confirmed participants Amre Moussa, former Secretary General of the Arab League, Ayad Allawi, Vice President for Reconciliation of Iraq, and Mahmoud Jibril, Leader of the National Forces Alliance in Libya. The session will be moderated by Ghassan Salame, Dean of the Paris School of International Affairs at Sciences Po Paris.

This will be Dr. Nayed’s second participation at the World Economic Forum and another opportunity to promote the work of LIAS to such a global audience. In Davos, Dr. Nayed will also meet with Dr. Ali Tarhouni, Head of the Constituent Assembly.
