PUBLIC LECTURE: CMSS The Arab Spring At Two and a Half: Lessons, Challenges, and Opportunities.
|CMSS The Arab Spring At Two and a Half: Lessons, Challenges, and Opportunities. : Visiting Research Professor Dr Emile Nakhleh at New Mexico will highlight the lessons, challenges, and opportunities for the region and major foreign powers.
“As the Arab Spring enters its third year, new Arab democracies are struggling with a myriad of serious issues, which could impact the future success or failure of democratic transitions in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, and other countries in the region. These issues include governance; Islamic politics; social complexity and diversity of Arab society; human rights and women’s rights; and continued violence and repression in Syria, Bahrain, and elsewhere. A key challenge revolves around job creation and entrepreneurship. The new Arab democracies will have to adopt creative economic policies and promote economic growth to provide jobs for the millions of Arab youth in the new democracies. In the final analysis, an employed population is the backbone of a democratic society. Furthermore, economic prosperity will be critical for the stability and social peace of the new democracies in the Middle East. The presentation will highlight the lessons, challenges, and opportunities for the region and major foreign powers.”
