Libya-Since November 2011 Susan has researched and investigated a collection of 'found' historical photographs of Libya collated by Peter Bouckaert, Emergencies director for HRW and his team during the Libyan 2011 Revolution. The goal is to attach basic information to the photographs through research in university and government archives in tandem with interviews with Libyans and other eyewitness's who assist in verification with cross-verification incorporated into the process. A timeline has been created from the Kingdom of Libya period through to the end of the Gaddafi regime. In 2013 a Fritt-Ord grant was awarded to fund this research. The archive is in the custodianship of Peter Bouckaert and the research is an on-going process.
