Egypt and the Arab Spring, One Year Later
The revolution in Egypt that was sparked nearly a year ago has shaken the Arab world to its roots. Why and how did the revolution come to happen in January and February 2011? What has the fall of Mubarak's regime truly meant for the Egyptian people and for people across the Arab world? The most populous Arab country and the historical center of Arab intellectual life, Egypt is a lynchpin of the US's Middle East strategy, receiving more aid than any nation except Israel. What is next for Egypt, the region, and U.S.-Egypt relations?
The World Affairs Council presents Dr. Steven A. Cook, leading regional expert and author of The Struggle for Egypt: From Nasser to Tahrir Square for an in-depth discussion of how the Egyptian revolution came to be and what we can expect for the future of Egypt, its neighbors, and the U.S. role in the region. Dr. Cook was in Cairo during the historic events in Tahrir Square. Don't miss this exclusive program to mark the one-year anniversary of Egyptians taking to the streets by the thousands on January 25, 2011.
