The North African states of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia have witnessed some dramatic social and political changes in recent years. Tunisia saw the birth of the Arab Spring in 2011, which consisted of uprisings spreading to overthrow many dictatorships throughout North Africa and the Middle East. Unfortunately, many of these states have descended into chaos and civil war. Only Tunisia still holds the promise of democracy brought by the Arab Spring. While Algeria and Morocco’s regimes have entrenched themselves further, all have had to face the growing threat of terrorism.
Keith St. Clair invites you to come and learn more about the current history and politics of these fascinating societies: Wednesday April 15, 2015 from 2:15pm – 3:15pm in the ATC Auditorium (Room 168)
