Event Details

NOTE: The City Club of Cleveland will host a City Club Forum at The Breen Center for the Performing Arts at Saint Ignatius High School.  This event will NOT be held at The City Club of Cleveland.


The Arab world changed irrevocably in 2011. While the Western media was trying to make sense of the uprisings as they spread from Tunisia to Egypt, Bahrain, and beyond, Rami Khouri examined and lived the events as they unfolded, and he helped readers of The Daily Star and The International Herald Tribune understand what was happening. Despite the interest journalists and academics have had in the uprisings, Khouri worries that many misunderstood the events, their potential and their significance. Along with Kent State University Assistant Professor of Political Science Joshua Stacher, Khouri will talk about the real stories behind the headlines and soundbites.

 

Rami Khouri is Director of the Issam Fare Institute of Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut as well as editor-at-large of the Beirut-based Daily Star newspaper. He is internationally syndicated political Columnist and author of "A View from the Arab World," twice weekly. In October 2006 Rami was a visiting scholar at Stanford University and in November 2006, he was the co-recipient of the Pax Christi International Peace Award for his efforts to bring peace and reconciliation to the Middle East. Khouri earned BA and MSc degrees in Political Science and Mass Communications from Syracuse University. 

 

The Northeast Ohio Consortium for Middle East Studies (NOCMES) is a collaboration of several local educational institutions and The Civic Commons is working to support their efforts. Learn more about NOCMES and the "New Perspectives on Muslim and Middle East Societies" speaker series
