February 4, 10 a.m. | Freeman Commons
Professor Ragui Assaad of the Humphrey School will host a discussion about the current situation in Egypt, Tunisia, and the surrounding region with Professor Brett Wilson of Macalester College at 10 a.m. on Friday, February 4, in Freeman Commons at the Humphrey Center. Escalating unrest in Egypt and Tunisia have led to riot and revolution. And although the situations differ, both are demands for democracy, and will likely have immense impacts on the region. This discussion, which is free and open to the public, will delve into details of the current situation, as well as what it might mean for the region moving forward.
