Liberia Looks to the Future (April 12, 2018)

Liberian democracy took an important step forward in late 2017 when citizens elected a new president to replace Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who voluntarily stepped down when her term expired. Several Carter Center programs joined forces to help support a peaceful transition, and though the process was at times rocky, peace prevailed. Learn more about this historic election, the Carter Center’s long-term programming in Liberia — including mental health, justice, and access to information efforts — and what the future may hold for Africa’s oldest republic.

Panelists include:
- Jason Carter, chairman of the Carter Center’s Board of Trustees
- Eve Byrd, director of the Carter Center’s Mental Health Program
- Pewee Flomoku, the Carter Center’s chief of party in Liberia, who oversees the Center’s Access to Justice Project
- Laura Neuman, director of the Carter Center’s Global Access to Information

Program Moderator:
- Jim Clancy, journalist and former CNN International anchor

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
