Join the Arab Studies Institute (ASI) and George Mason University's Middle East Studies Program at the Vision Series, Examining Important Issues of our Day. Dr. Bassam Haddad presents "Understanding the Arab Uprisings and Their Aftermath." This event will be hosted at George Mason University's Center of the Arts Concert Hall on Monday, September 23 , 2013 @ 7PM.
This talk addresses the causes of the Arab uprisings and the seemingly troubled aftermath. The speaker argues that while generalizing is useful, it often times obscures the particular dynamics in each case of the Arab revolutions, and goes on to address the factors that will continue to spur mass protests if elected governments do not adequately deal with them.
