The Aftermath of the “Arab Spring”: An Update—April 10 at NYU

March 24, 2014
N-266

The aftermath of the “Arab Spring” has resulted in unforeseen changes in the political landscape of many countries of the region, especially regarding the role of Islam and democracy. How have these countries been affected since the historic transformation began? Is U.S. foreign policy adapting successfully to these changes?

A leading journalist and observer of the region, GlobalPost Co-Founder and Editor-at-Large Charles M. Sennott, will discuss these issues in a lecture at NYU on Thurs., Apr. 10, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute (20 Cooper Sq., 7th Floor, between 4th and 6th Streets).

The lecture, co-sponsored by the NYU Center for Dialogues and Foreign Policy Association, is part of Foreign Policy Association’s “Great Decisions” lecture series.

An award-winning foreign correspondent with 25 years of experience, Sennott has reported on the front lines of wars and insurgencies in at least 15 countries, including the 2011 revolution in Cairo and the “Arab Spring.”

Sennott will be introduced by Mustapha Tlili, founder and director of the NYU Center for Dialogues. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session.

The event will be followed by a reception.

Anyone wishing to attend must register online. The event is free for Foreign Policy Association (FPA) members, all students, and NYU faculty and staff. NYU faculty and staff must register in advance and show ID at the door. Tickets for guests of FPA members and “Off-The-Record” lecture series patrons are $15. General admission is $25. For more information, call 212.481.8100, ext. 392.

The venue is courtesy of the Global and Joint studies program at NYU's Carter Journalism Institute.

Subways: 6 (Astor Place), N, R (8th Street - NYU).
 

Editor’s Note:
New York University’s Center for Dialogues: Islamic World-U.S.-The West emerged from the tragedy of September 11th, which highlighted the need for greater communication among and about the United States, Europe, and the Muslim world. The Center was founded as a forum for constructive debate among the various religious, intellectual, economic, and political sectors of American, European, and Islamic societies. It brings contentious issues between the Islamic world and the West into a more rational plane and promotes this approach to a wide audience, including important constituencies of policy and decision-makers, policy analysts, the media, and educational institutions.
