The Middle East Institute will host a panel discussion with three professors from the Department of Political Science to discuss the 2012 presidential candidates’ stances on foreign policy in the Middle East, the impact of recent turmoil in the Middle East on their campaigns, and the likelihood that this issue will be a decisive one.
The discussion will be held on Thursday, October 18 at 12:00 in the Troy Moore Library, 9th Floor, General Classroom Building.
