Reform, Revolution, or Status Quo? Regional Dynamics in a Changing Arab World
This meeting is co-sponsored by the Middle East Program at the Woodrow Wilson Center and the United States Institute of Peace.
Some experts predicted that the "Arab spring" rebellions of would widen the strategic, political, and even ideological gap between Arab states undergoing dramatic change and those defending the status quo. In fact, no such clear breach has occurred. Instead, Dr. Adeed Dawisha, distinguished professor of political science at Miami University, argues that sectarian tensions and economic constraints have dampened the potentially "incendiary" effect of the Arab political revolts. Please join us at USIP for an engaging discussion on these dynamics in the Middle East with Dr. Dawisha, the State Department's Dafna Rand, and USIP's Daniel Brumberg on June 12, from 10:00am to 11:30am.
