After the Arab Spring
The world has been caught by surprise as youthful revolutions have swept across the Middle East toppling entrenched dictators in the so-called “Arab Spring.” But as the dust settles there are mixed results in terms of democratic progress and reform. Dr. Rabab el-Mahdi, an activist and participant in the Egyptian revolution and a professor of Political Science at American University in Cairo, and Jawad Nabulsi, a community organizer who was active in Tahrir Square, join us.
This ongoing series of timely, thought-provoking events addresses current social and political issues.
Hammer Forum is moderated by Ian Masters, journalist, author, screenwriter, documentary filmmaker, and host of the radio programs Background Briefing, Sundays at 11AM, and The Daily Briefing, Monday through Thursday at 5PM, on KPFK 90.7 FM.
Hammer Forum is made possible in part by Bronya and Andrew Galef.
Public programs are made possible by Hammer Members and the generosity of Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and an anonymous donor.
