Dalia Ziada (GMAP ‘11), award-winning Egyptian liberal human rights activist, will talk about her work in post-revolutionary Egypt, focusing on three topics: 

  • Empowering liberal youth to transform them from revolutionaries to politicians.
  • Women’s rights in post-revolution Egypt.
  • The political rise of Islamists and their effect on religious freedom.

Dalia Ziada is also a socio-political analyst, public speaker, and Executive Director of the Cairo-based Ibn Khaldun Center for Development Studies, one of the oldest and biggest nongovernmental organizations advocating human rights and civil freedoms in Egypt and the Arab World since 1980s. Dalia holds a Masters Degree in International Relations from the Fletcher School for Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University.

Lisa De Bode (MALD ’13) is a journalist and editorial intern at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, where she comments on reporting on Islam in US news. She is the author of The Quiet Revolution, a work of narrative nonfiction about the impact of 9/11 on women's rights in Saudi Arabia, for which she was awarded the Dutch national youth foreign reporting prize Dick Scherpenzeel.
