5:30 PM – 7:00 PM
Some recent developments in the U.S. have had a familiar ring to them for those who have lived under authoritarian rule. Talk about rigged elections, foreign intervention, fake news, the deep state, gender rights, and coups are very much part of another world not normally associated with this country. This panel discussion will draw lessons in two ways. It seeks to inform U.S. policy towards the region and to inform communities in the U.S. reacting to changing orders here in the U.S. and abroad. We are delighted to have special guests Drs. Ezzedine Fishere from Egypt, now at Dartmouth, and Nadia Marzouki from Tunisia, now at the Harvard Kennedy School. The discussion will be moderated by Benjamin Naimark-Rowse from Fletcher with the participation of Fletcher faculty and students.
