Conversations at The Carter Center | Liberia Looks to the Future (April 12, 2018)

Liberian democracy took an important step forward in late 2017 when, for the first time in 70 years, its citizens saw power transfer from one democratically elected president to the next. 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.

  • 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
