“Is Democracy Possible in the Middle East? Exploring the Egyptian Spring” presented by Hala Ghoneim, Assistant Professor, Languages and Literatures.

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

What is the state of democracy in the world today?  Who are the advocates of democracy and how do they make their voices known in the ballot box, in street demonstrations, and via social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook.   Can democracy find root in societies where dictatorship, political exclusion, corruption and fanaticism have often been seen to dominate?  Join us for the Fall Fairhaven Lecture Series, “Democracy Today: An International Perspective,” to examine our increasingly democratic world and what it really means to participate.


All lectures are free and open to the public. Links to videos of lectures, including those from prior series, can be found at  If you have a disability and desire accommodations, please advise us as early as possible. Requests are confidential.
