Round Up of Middle East Initiative Spring Events

Summer 2012

A year after the sparks of revolution began in the Arab World, the Middle East Initiative (MEI) focused its spring events on the implications of the region’s tumultuous transition.  Two back to back forum events in February commemorated the revolution in Egypt, and two public events on Tunisia provided insight into the emerging democracy’s efforts to write a new constitution. In a panel discussion organized with the American University of Beirut (AUB), faculty from both institutions addressed the lessons learned from the Arab uprisings and analyzed prospects for democratic transition. A multi-part series organized by MEI fellow Diana Buttu, featured five different experts’ take on the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Additional seminars addressed current affairs in Libya, Yemen, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states.
