We’re starting with a debate held at Beirut’s AUB by the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs. The talk, which is moderated by the institute’s director Rami G. Khouri, goes under the name “Understanding the Arab …Spring? Uprising? Revolution? Awakening? Citizen Revolt?”. Panelists are Fawwaz Traboulsi, lecturer, writer and historian, who is also a long time journalist and author of A Modern History of Lebanon; Tarek Mitri, Senior Research Fellow at the institute and former Minister of Culture and Minister of Information; and Rabab al-Mahdi, Assistant Professor of Political Science at AUC, co-editor of Egypt: The Moment of Change, and active in the Egyptian revolts.
