The Arab uprising of 2011 has given way to a cacophany of civil wars, failed states, and proxy wars. How did the promise of democratic change go wrong? This talk will examine the causes and consequences of wars in Libya, Syria and Yemen, the rise of the Islamic State, and the Iranian nuclear agreement. How should the next President approach this rapidly changing Middle East?
Speaker: MARC LYNCH, Professor of Political Science and International Affairs, George Washington University. His expertise includes Arab media and public opinion, Islamist movements, constructivism in international relations and public diplomacy.
