Storm in the Desert ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

Britain's intervention in Libya and the Arab Spring

In this remarkable book, Mark Muller Stuart QC tells the story of British intervention in Libya and the Arab Spring from a unique civil society standpoint: he was there in Benghazi two weeks after the UN No-Fly Zone Resolution was passed, meeting with Rebel leaders to discuss how Western civil society might help them stabilise the country and resolve difficult legacy issues such as victim claims over Lockerbie and the supply of IRA Semtex.In an age when Western governments have become risk averse and distrusted in the Middle East, Muller Stuart documents how non-state mediators, non-governmental organisations, journalists, artists and like-minded diplomats, such as assassinated US Ambassador Chris Stevens, explore ways to support democratic movements and promote human rights in one of the world's most turbulent regions. Storm in the Desert describes a dramatic story of revolution and also the murky but sometimes inspiring role successive British governments have played in trying to contain conflict in the region. It gives a unique insight into the world of diplomacy and power politics and the way they impact upon ordinary human lives, suggesting that it is civil society not government that ultimately stabilises countries and unearths the truth about conflict and the ill-treatment of civilians at the hand of state forces.Mark Muller Stuart QC is a senior advocate who specialises in human rights and public international law, advising international bodies on humanitarian issues and conflict resolution. He is a senior mediation advisor to the United Nations Department of Political Affairs and has conducted international missions throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa. He is also founder of Beyond Borders, a Scottish not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fostering peace and international exchange. Mark has written a number of books and reports on human rights and conflict-related issues, and is an associate tenant/member of Doughty Street Chambers.
