Jones Day advises the Libyan Constitutional Commission on mechanisms for resolving deadlocks in constitutional negotiation

Client(s) Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG)

Following the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime in 2011, the Libyan Constitutional Commission will be working on developing a new constitution for Libya. In aid of that task, and at the request of the Public International Law & Policy Group ("PILPG"), a global pro bono law firm, Jones Day conducted a survey of state practices relating to the resolution of divisive issues in the process of drafting modern constitutions. The results of the survey are discussed in a comprehensive study of the mechanisms employed to prevent and resolve deadlocks in constitutional negotiations.
