Muammar Gaddafi's regime appears to be crumbling and, even though he is still at large, Libya is moving into a new era. 

As Western powers scramble to ensure a transition that is not marred by violence, with oil wealth and reconstruction contracts up for grabs, what role will the West have in post-Gaddafi Libya?

And do Libyans have a common vision for their future? Can the National Transitional Council handle the task ahead on its own? 

Inside Story, with presenter Sami Zeidan, discusses with guests: Kurt Volker, a former US representative at NATO; Pierre Rousselin, the foreign editor of Le Figaro newspaper; and Alexander Nekrassov, a former Kremlin advisor.
