Five years after the Arab uprisings that shook the Middle East, the region has witnessed the rise and fall of democratically elected Islamist parties and the shocking influence of violent movements such as the Islamic State. As we enter 2016, join POMEPS for a panel discussion on the future of Islamist movements in the Middle East and how we study them.

Panelists:

Lindsay Benstead – Portland State University

Hesham Sallam– Stanford University

Jillian Schwedler – Hunter College

Moderated by: 

Marc Lynch – George Washington University 

For background reading on the state of Islamist movements and the challenges facing Islam in the region, read POMEPS Studies 12 Islam in the IS AgePOMEPS Studies 15 Islam in International Order, and POMEPS Briefing 28, The Gulf’s Escalating Sectarianism.

 This event is part of a special series on Islam in a Changing Middle East supported by the Henry Luce Foundation.
