Liberian Election

NYU Washington, DC, Friends of Liberia (FOL), and the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) welcomed an expert panel to examine the ongoing Liberian Presidential Election. 

Retired Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs and Ambassador to Liberia, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, led an analysis of the election process and its meaning to Liberians through the prisms of peace, democracy, and development. Panelists provided up-to-the-minute information on the election, discussed the impact of the delay on Liberia's application of the law and acceptance of the results, and assessed the challenges a new president will face in unifying the country.
