Please join the Center for American Progress for a special presentation:

What Do the Popular Uprisings in the Middle East Mean for the Future of Political Islam?

April 15, 2011, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

About This Event

The popular uprisings in the Middle East have brought the question of political Islam to the center stage of America’s policy debate. How do Islamist thinkers view the political transitions underway in Egypt and Tunisia, and what are they saying about the turmoil in places such as Libya and Yemen? What role will Islamist political groups play in countries opening up to democratic reforms, and what are the implications for U.S. policy in the Middle East.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a discussion of these questions and issues with one of the foremost scholars of Islam and the modern world, Tariq Ramadan.
