Libyan Foreign Policy and Media Representation
My research examines Libya’s foreign policy in the post-World War II period up to the present time, in particular the period 1969 to 2005. It focuses on the period following the revolution of September 1969 which brought Colonel Muammer Al-Gaddafi to leadership, examining the changes Libyan foreign policy underwent and the reasons for them, as well as Western media representations of them.

Five years experience as a journalist as a result of working for a number of well known Libyan Newspapers and Magazines.
In 1999 I was invited to attend the Arabic Media Conference on the role of Arabic media in human rights culture, as the Libyan representative. The conference was held in Cairo, Egypt. I was given the opportunity to interview the Egyptian former Minster; General Amar Musa who is currently the Manager of the Arabic League. The interview was successful and was published in the Al-Zahf-Al Akader Newspaper in October 1999.
I have also interviewed the French writer Jorg Garodi. The article was also published in the Al-Zahf Alkadar Newspaper during 2002.
I was also fortunate enough to interview Hans Coshlor, an international Lawyer working in the United Nations. He had been sent as an Observer by the General Secretary to attend the court at Lockerbie disaster.
