ABSTRACT
Popular uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East marked the beginning of 2011 in an unprecedented phenomenon in the region. Th is resulted in a number of diff erent responses among the states involved. However, the case of Libya in particular, drew the attention of the international community because of the violent response of the regime of Muammar Al-Gaddafi to the protests. With increasing violence response was swift and the regime now faces international sanctions, a military intervention and a civil war. Is this the end of Qaddafi ? Maybe not, however, it is the end of an era.
