Pondering America's Dilemma re: Egypt

What is the state of Egyptian democracy two years after the popular revolution that ousted President Hosni Mubarak? How much influence does America have in an area that is increasingly unstable and potentially anti-American? How will the Egyptian military and the civilian government balance power in this volatile region?

Mohamed Arafa, Adjunct Professor of Islamic Law at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, and Assistant Professor of Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, Alexandria University Faculty of Law (Egypt) will discuss options during a presentation from 3-4:15 p.m. 14 February in Room 3015 of the Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis Business School/School of Public and Environmental Affairs, 801 West Michigan Street, Indianapolis.

Arafa served as Egypt’s expert in the drafting of the World Justice Project’s Rule of Law Index for 2012.

(And a tip of the hat to Provocate.org for alerting this Indianapolis Observer about the event.)
