Elliott School of International Affairs, 505 Free Event

1957 Est NW Washington, DC 20052

Free Event

The Middle East Policy Forum at the Elliott School of International Affairs will host this conversation on how the militaries in Tunisia and Egypt acted during and after the 2011 uprisings in those two countries. Dr. Sharan Grewal, author of Soldiers of Democracy? Military Legacies and the Arab Spring, will highlight how dictators’ choices to either empower or marginalize the military creates legacies that shape both the likelihood of democratization and the forms by which it breaks down.


Dr. Grewal will discuss his new book with Kuwait Professor of Gulf and Arabian Affairs Gordon Gray, who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia at the start of the Arab Spring.
