About the Platform
The “Next Generation: Emergent Leaders in Libya” platform support efforts toward institution-building and reconciliation in Libya. It aims to inspire larger civic participation in Libyan communities and create a network of young emerging leaders committed to work to support, develop and promote:
– collective action and teamwork
– reconciliation within the country
– reparations for victims of war
– building of the Libyan national identity
The goals of the platform seek to energize and empower Libyan youth to actively contribute to the building of a pluralistic and inclusive Libyan society, free of autocracy and based on the rule of law, by engaging in panel discussions, writing articles and appearing on media addressing issues (problems) at hand offering solutions and best ways forward.
The platform will also address the corruption and bottleneck of the economy, including provision of services that Libyan people need, throughout the country, promote an independent judiciary and non-interference by the executive branch of the government in its work, and a stronger youth representation in the administration and government ministries.
