Building Peace in the Middle East

May 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm


Take advantage of the unique opportunity to hear two leading authors and commentators, IPS’s New Internationalism Project Director Phyllis Bennis and Stockholm International Peace Research Institute Director Dan Smith, make sense of the complexities of the Middle East. The region has such a pivotal role in global politics and yet, it’s full of paradoxes and contradictions.

Bennis, author of NoNonsense ISIS and Syria, and Smith, author of The State of the Middle East Atlas, will give an accessible and progressive discussion around the history, current situtation, and ways to build peace and justice in the Middle East. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A.
