Middle East in Transition: Peace and Conflict Part I
Mar 15, 2017 - 11:00 AM-12:30 PM (Eastern)
This two part event on March 15th and 22nd will explore how we think about the choice between violence and non-violence, both in terms of how we remember the history of these movements, and in the current context of transition in the Middle East. Students will explore their personal and moral response to violence, and how they view the difference between terrorism and self-defense, or between appropriate and inappropriate violence. Students will explore the balance of violence and nonviolence involved in key historical transitions in order to better understand current resistance movements across the Middle East.
