After the Arab Spring: Successes and Failures in a Shifting Middle East

Date: 
Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Location: 
World Affairs Council of Philadelphia One South Broad Street, Suite 2M
Philadelphia, PA 19107
United States

Death sentences for members of the Muslim Brotherhood were recently handed down by Egypt’s criminal court, and more than 100,000 Syrians have died as a result of the carnage of Syria’s civil war. Yet, millions of Iraqis embraced the right to vote in recent elections, and in other countries, new governments and constitutions are in place.

Dr. Paul Salem, Vice President for Policy and Research at the Middle East Institute in Washington, D.C., will join the discussion about the historic changes taking place in the Middle East and will offer his insights on the rapidly-changing political, social and economic conditions in Egypt, Syria and their neighbors.

In cooperation with the Middle East Forum and the Global Philadelphia Association.

Bring your own lunch to this event, the Council will provide refreshments.
