Week in Review: Paris, Iran, MESA

Are you heading to MESA? Two notes if you’re going to be traveling to Denver: first, check out our guide to panels & discussions by POMEPS alumi. Second, RSVP for our reception Sunday night. We’d love to see you.

In the Monkey Cage…We’ve had some great analytical pieces about last week’s attacks in Paris. Daniel Byman, of Brookings and Georgetown, writes about the attacks and what they tells us about foreign fighters.

Lorenzo Vidino, of the Program on Extremism at the George Washington University, writes a concise analysis of the key takeaways from the attacks.
Dina Esfandiary, of King’s College London, and Ariane Tabatabai, of Georgetown, write about why an Iran deal won’t lead to nuclear proliferation.

In case you missed it, we posted video from Ari Spiegel’s event at POMEPS early this month. We might be a bit biased, but we think it’s well worth watching.

Finally, we’re at MESA (are you? see above) next week, so an early Happy Thanksgiving from POMEPS to you and yours. May your holiday be filled with lots of turkey, and discussions about political science (no? just us?).
