Seminar DescriptionThe current wave of unrest throughout the Middle East began in Tunisia in December 2010 and spread to Syria in March 2011. Protesters were met with brutal force from Bashar al-Assadﾒs government. Since then, the situation has gone from bad to catastrophic: demonstrations have escalated, thousands have been killed and the press has been banned. Experts on the region discuss the most recent events and explore possible outcomes.
