Professor Mongi Bahloul will present a talk at Lock Haven University entitled "The Arab Spring: Revolution Going Wrong?" He will speak in the Hamblin Hall of Flags on April 11 at 7 p.m. The public is invited to this free event.
Dr. Bahloul is a senior Fulbright scholar and professor emeritus at the University of Sfax, Tunisia. During his previous visit to campus he gave a series of lectures on the Arab Spring and warned that creating western style democracy in North Africa and the Middle East is fraught with problems and may not succeed.
Professor Bahloul has had first-hand experience with the events in the Arab Spring. He was present in Tunisia when the uprising began and escaped from Brega, Libya when the battle for Libya was raging. His talk will concentrate on the genesis of the current political situations in Tunisia and Libya.
