In March 2008, while I was first developing the World University Project, I was invited, in conjunction with the Cambridge Union Society and Anglia Ruskin University, to assemble a group of students to visit and film in universities in Tripoli, Benghazi, and Al-Beida.

I was responsible for managing our internal affairs: recruiting the team, project managing preparations, and setting the focus of the documentary. I also oversaw post-production. Matthew Jarvis, then Senior Officer of the Cambridge Union Society, coordinated our international negotiations.

Universities visited included:

  • Al-Fateh University, Tripoli
  • Al-Academia graduate school, Tripoli
  • Centre for Green Book Studies, Tripoli
  • Gar Younis University, Benghazi
  • Omar Al-Mukhtar Medical Institute, Al-Beida

Some of the footage has been posted to YouTube. We are currently working together with Anglia Ruskin University to produce some short documentaries from the material taken.

I am deeply grateful to the excellent teamwork of everyone involved.
