Since Mohamed Bouazizi's self-immolation in December of 2010 sparked protests first in Tunisia and then throughout most of the Arab world, regime changes have taken place in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. More to come? Are there common underlying political processes at play? Is religion a factor or an accident in these revolutions? What are the roles of unemployment, poverty and oil? A panel of Saint Mary's faculty will discuss these questions and the implications of the revolutions in the Arab world for the United States. Event is free and sponsored by the Saint Mary's College Center for the Regional Economy, but RSVP is required.
Date & Time:
Monday, October 3, 2011 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Soda Activity Center, Saint Mary's College of California, 1928 St. Mary's Rd., Moraga.
