Negotiating Transitions: Arab Armies in Politics

Speaker: Professor Yezid Sayigh, Carnegie Middle East Center
Chair: Dr Toby Dodge, LSE

Monday 23 January 2012, 18.30 - 20.00, CLM 4.02, Clement House

The construction of authoritarian power in Arab states over past decades has enmeshed national armies in political, economic, and social structures and dynamics. Democratic transition therefore implicates constitutional debates about the nature of the state with renegotiation of the role and status of the military.

This lecture is open to all and registration is not required.
Admission is on a first come first served basis.
