| November 18, 2016

Audio recordings from MEI's Fall 2016 Study Group Globalization and its Discontents in the Middle East and North Africa, with Professor Robert Springborg, Kuwait Foundation Visiting Scholar, Fall 2016.

During the Fall 2016 semester, visiting scholar Professor Robert Springborg invited a distinguished group of scholars to address the implications of slowing global integration for the Middle East, a region both harmed and helped by rapid globalization in the late 20th century. Over the course of nine seminars, the group explored issues including postcolonial countercurrents in the Middle East and North Africa, the Iranian nuclear agreement, Egypt's military economy, resource wealth, liberal arts education, economic strain and its impact on Islamism, and the future of the United States' Middle East alliances.
