Workshop | January 12 | 3-4 p.m. | 340 Stephens Hall
As people across the world planned to ring in the New Year, cities across Iran erupted in the largest wave of protests the country has seen in almost a decade. The unrest, which has carried on into 2018, has prompted a number of debates. Who are the main actors? What are the protesters demands? Whom do they target? How are these demonstrations different from the 2009 Green Movement? Will they have an effect on Irans domestic and foreign policies? In this first MENA Salon of the spring semester, we will consider these and other pressing questions.
