Today, Sept. 27: The Future of Human Rights and Revolution in the Arab World
“The Future of Human Rights and the Revolution in the Arab World”
How has the international human rights regime informed the Arab world’s politics? And how did that impact on the Arab uprisings of 2011-2012? Now that it is clear that the Arab uprisings were, at best, incomplete revolutions, will human rights prove to be relevant or irrelevant to the future of this changing region?
Please join us for a talk on these topics by Anthony Tirado Chase, Associate Professor of Diplomacy & World Affairs at Occidental College, and author of both Human Rights, Revolution, and Reform in the Muslim World (2012) and Human Rights in the Arab World: Independent Voices (2006, with Amr Hamzawy).
This event is being co-sponsored by HLS Advocates for Human Rights
