Foreign Affairs;Mar/Apr2012, Vol. 91 Issue 2, p2
The article examines the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) success during the 2011 Libyan Conflict, where in NATO and local forces sought to depose authoritarian Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi. The authors argue that the conflict was a successful example of international intervention, yet note that for NATO to succeed in the future, member nations must play a more equitable role in combat procedures. They explain that the political cohesion displayed among member states during the conflict will be needed in the May 2012 NATO summit meeting in Chicago, Illinois.
