Monitor Group, Libya, and the intellectuals

Via the wonderfully named neon tommy blog at USC, some further context about the involvement of various intellectuals with Libya in the mid 2000s. This post includes a link to a fuller analysis in Mother Jones. The consultancy group at the centre of this story, Monitor, has now acknowledged ‘mistakes’ in helping to develop these relationships as part of a sustained campaign to re-brand Libya’s image in the West. Monitor are also implicated in the controversy around Said Gaddafi’s PhD – they helped with the data collection.
