POMEPS Conversations: Nathan Brown (S. 4, Ep. 1)

The first episode in the new POMEPS Conversations series features my George Washington University colleague Nathan Brown. Currently the director of GW’s Institute for Middle East Studies, Brown recently concluded a term as the president of the Middle East Studies Association. He is also a member of the POMEPS Advisory Board and my colleague at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Middle East Program. Brown has been an exceptionally prolific and thoughtful analyst of Egypt and the Arab world and his newest book is When Victory is Not an Option: Islamist Movements in Arab Politics (Cornell University Press). He contributes frequently to the Monkey Cage, including most recently “Why Egypt’s new Parliament will be born broken” (October 13, 2015) and “Who is running the Egyptian state?” (July 31, 2015).

Music for this season’s podcast was created by Feras Arrabi. You can find more of his work on his Facebook and Instagram page.
