Panel: Unraveling the Arab Spring: Egypt Since 2011

 

“Unraveling the Arab Spring: Egypt Since 2011” examines the aftermath of Egypt’s Arab Spring, the revolution that shook the country six years ago.

Youssef will join U-M distinguished scholars Juan Cole, Samer Ali, and Weiser Emerging Democracies Postdoctoral Fellow, Jean Lachapelle, to discuss the shifting relationships between Egyptians, their government, and freedom of expression in an Egypt that attempts to thrive beyond the Arab Spring.

Moderator: Pauline Jones, DISC director.
