Panel Discussion on Revolutions in the Middle East

First Tunisia and Egypt and now Bahrain, Yemen, and Libya. Are we witnessing the end of the age of the Arab autocrats? What are the implications of fundamental political change for the peoples of the Middle East and for United States foreign policy? Join us for a discussion led by Georgia State University faculty and students.

In light of these recent events, the Middle East Institute and the Department of Political Science have organized a panel discussion to be held on Tuesday, March 29, from 12:00-1:30 p.m.

The panel titled “The Arab Revolutions: Libya, Yemen Bahrain and Beyond” will be held in Troy Moore Library (9th floor, General Classroom Building). Panel participants include: Dr. Michael Herb (Political Science), Dr. Rashid Naim (Political Science), and Dr. Isa Blumi (History).  Contact Alta Schwartz at aschwartz@gsu.edu or 404.413.6146 for additional information.
