Middle East in Transition: Peace and Conflict
Oct 22, 2014 - 0:00 AM-0:00 AM (Eastern)
This two part event on October 22nd and 29th will explore how we think about the choice between violence and nonviolence, 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.
