See video

Scholars from CEU and across the Middle East analyzed the ongoing political movements in Egypt, Tunisia, and around the region at a special roundtable discussion here in Budapest. 

Likening the evening to the American civil rights "teach-ins" of the 1960s, President and Rector John Shattuck led discussants in a wide ranging conversation about political activism and democratization in the Middle East; about the future relationship between Middle Eastern states and the US and the EU; and about what the world has learned from past revolutionary movements of the 20th century.
