OU scholars to explore impacts of political protests in Arab world

In response to waves of popular protest that have erupted in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and beyond, the Department of Political Science and the Center for International Programs at Oakland University will host a panel discussion featuring three accomplished scholars in political science and history, as well as a professor from Tunisia.

As uprisings have spread across the Arab world, Americans are left to consider what these revolutions will mean for the region and for American foreign policy. Panelists participating in "Popular Revolution in the Arab World: Cause for Celebration or Cause for Concern?" will explore the impacts of these potentially world-changing events.

Speakers will include:

The discussion will take place from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10, in the Fireside Lounge of Oakland Center, which is located in the heart of campus. Interactive and printable maps are available at oakland.edu/map. The event is free and open to the public.
