Event Description:
A Ford Hall Forum event.

Featuring Elizabeth F. Thompson (author, Justice Interrupted) and moderated by Robert Laffey (Assistant Professor of Government, Suffolk University). A Frederic G. Corneel Memorial Forum.

How much closer are Middle Eastern countries to having functioning constitutional governments than they were in the spring of 2011? How will such governments impact their economies? What unique challenges and opportunities has each country faced in building new government? How has the culture played into the emerging politics? Elizabeth F. Thompson joins us to provide an update on happenings in the Middle East, particularly in terms of consequences we did not foresee two years ago. Robert Laffey guides this discussion on post-Arab Spring sociopolitical changes and mines Thompson’s book for answers.
