From elections, to refugee crises, ISIL, shifting alliances and Jerusalem – instability continues to mark the Middle East. Turmoil across the Middle East makes it harder to narrow down the main political issues, but the Syrian crisis, the fate of refugees, elections and terrorists top the list. Dr. Buket Oztas, Assistant Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Furman University, will shed light on these and other issues, and answer your questions. This lecture is the sixth of our 7-part monthly America and the World Lecture Series, hosted by the World Affairs Council Upstate in partnership with Furman University. Join us on Wednesday, February 20 from 12:00 - 1:30 pm.
