The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies is pleased to present


Islamists vs. Secularists: The Arab Spring, Phase 2 

Featuring

Ahmed Benchemsi 

Why did the young, secular activists who sparked the Arab Spring back off after regime change happened? What are the underlying factors of the Islamist movements' ensuing electoral forays? What does this tell about Arab societies? Can secularism ever take root and prosper as a significant trend in the Arab World?


Ahmed Benchemsi is a Moroccan, US-based journalist, and currently a visiting scholar at Stanford University. Mr. Benchemsi is the Founder and Editor in Chief of Free Arabs (www.freearabs.com). Before joining Stanford, he founded, published, and edited TelQuel and Nishan, Morocco's two best-selling magazines. He was twice awarded "Best investigative Journalist in the Arab World" by the European Union. Blogs at http://ahmedbenchemsi.com/, tweets as @AhmedBenchemsi.


 Light refreshments will be served.
