Sarah Shield’s Talk on the Middle East

June 22, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Human Rights in the Modern Middle East

June 22, 2016 | 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Featuring Sarah D. Shields, Bowman and Gordon Gray Distinguished Term Professor of History

No place on Earth has seen more violence and disruption in the past 20 years than the Middle East. From economic sanctions to wars, to terrorism and torture, to dictatorships and superpower interventions, human rights violations seemingly define the region’s recent history. Sarah Shields discusses cases of human rights transgressions from an historical perspective, and offers her take on the reasons for the desperate state of affairs in the Middle East.
