The Rise of Islamist Parties in the New Middle East
This special "Beyond the Broadcast" panel discussion focused on Islamist movements in the Middle East. The event coincided with the release of American Abroad Media's one-hour America Abroad documentary, The Rise of Islamist Parties in the New Middle East, and featured Nathan Brown, professor of political science and international affairs at the George Washington University, and Jocelyne Cesari, Berkley Center research fellow. Discussion explored the challenges facing Islamist parties as they govern for the first time and how their victories will impact relations between Arab countries and the world around them.
This event was hosted by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, America Abroad Media, and the World Faiths Development Dialogue.
