AUB’s Global Engagement Initiative and the Middle East Institute, Washington, D.C. invite you to a discussion of the issues analyzed in
Zaid Al-Ali’s new book from Cambridge University Press: Arab Constitutionalism: The Coming Revolution
Speakers will review the ongoing constitutional, political, and citizen protest movements across the Arab region. What were the protest demands that forced more than a dozen Arab states to amend their constitutions, how did governments respond, and why did the constitutional reforms fail to bring about freer societies and better functioning states? What could the future revolution look like?
The discussion will be held online on Monday, December 13, 2021 at 7pm Beirut time, noon EST.
