Speaker(s): Professor Gilles Kepel

Recorded on 21 November 2012 at Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

Islamist movements have won most of the elections that took place in the aftermath of Arab revolutions. Have they hijacked the demonstrations and sacrifice of the youth that brought down the anciens régimes or have they truly espoused democracy?

Gilles Kepel is professor and chair, Middle East and Mediterranean studies at the Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po).
