False Dawn: Protest, Democracy and Violence in the New Middle East
Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, 170 E 64th St, New York, NY 10065
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Half a decade after Arabs across the Middle East poured into the streets to demand change, hopes for democracy have disappeared in a maelstrom of violence and renewed state repression. How did things go so wrong so quickly across a wide range of regimes?

Steven A. Cook, the Eni Enrico Mattei Senior Fellow for Middle East and Africa studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, will discuss why the recent Arab uprisings failed and have led to more repression and conflict, and the role that the United States can and should play in the Middle East.

He will be in conversation with James Ketterer, dean of International Studies at Bard College and director of the Bard Globalization and International Affairs program.

This event is part of the James Clarke Chace Memorial Speaker Series, co-sponsored by the Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program and Foreign Affairs.

The speaker series is free and open to the public by RSVP. Space is limited. RSVP here:
