Arab reform examined by panel


 More than 60 students and members of the community attended a Friday, Sept. 6, panel discussion on “The Future of Reform Movements in the Arab World” at Wayne State University Law School’s Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium.

The evening event, moderated by Professor Gregory Fox, director of the law school’s Program for International Legal Studies, featured three prominent analysts of Middle East politics: Professor Tarek Masoud of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, Professor Haider Hamoudi of the University of Pittsburgh Law School, and Professor Mark Tessler of the Department of Political Science at the University of Michigan.  

“Political, legal and social reform in the Arab world has reached a critical moment,” Fox said. “There seem to be good reasons to agree with both optimists and pessimists about the future of progressive change. We know the questions the panel will address are of great concern to the Wayne community and to many outside the university in southeast Michigan.”
