leave a comment »

From the National Endowment for Democracy’s Democracy Digest:

By kind invitation of U.S. Senator Patty Murray, and to mark the occasion of Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson’s Centennial, The Henry Jackson Society and The Henry M. Jackson Foundation are pleased to be able to invite you to ‘Whither the Arab Spring’.

Elliott Abrams, Former Assistant Secretary of State for UN affairs, Human Rights, and Latin America; Carl Gershman, President, National Endowment for Democracy; Ambassador Martin Indyk, Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel and Vice President and Director of Foreign Policy, Brookings; and Dr Lina Khatib, Program Manager for the Program on Arab Reform and Democracy at Stanford University will all be joining the panel to offer their thoughts on this crucial topic. They will examine the pressing concerns and unresolved issues which have emerged from the Arab Spring; the real prospects for democratic development within the region, the role the West has in supporting this development and the various factions which could shape the politics of the region in the long and short term.
