Free Public Panels: Governance in an Emerging New World | Stanford
Political upheaval, violence, and the Sunni-Shia divide have defined the Middle East and North Africa to outside observers for many years, but states across the region also confront shared global challenges of demographic transitions and governance in the age of social media, as well as the compelling economic potential of new technologies.
The discussion will address what these profound undercurrents, as well as the changing climate and expanding role of women, mean for the major Arab states, Turkey, Iran, and Israel.
Moderated by Abbas Milani, Hoover Institution and director of the Iranian studies program at Stanford University
- Prince Hicham Alaoui of Morocco, Harvard University
- Houssem Aoudi, cofounder and CEO at Cogite Coworking Tunisia
- Lisa Blaydes, professor of political science at Stanford University
- Arye Carmon, Hoover Institution and founder of the Israel Democracy Institute
- Aykan Erdemir, Foundation for Defense of Democracies
