Karim Makdisi is Associate Professor of International Politics at the American University of Beirut and Research Director of the UN in the Arab World program at the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs.
Panelists will discuss: (1) What impact the circus-like election cycle has had on politics and progressive struggles and (2) what prospects do activists have under the new administration for addressing issues (like climate change, racism, imperialism and militarism), and what might be points of leverage? And (3) what are sources of hope going forward?
