Private viewing and panel discussion “Two years later after the Arab Spring - An attempt at taking stock”

On 21 February at 6 p.m., BICC hosted the event “Two years after the Arab Spring – An attempt at taking stock” (in German) at its premises.

Experts discussed the effects of the Arab Spring on the general geopolitical climate in the Middle East, putting special emphasis on US-politics. Another topic was the interests lying behind the regional militarization by arms importers and exporters. Finally, the results of the militarization on the development of Egypt and Syria were discussed. 

This event was accompanied by the private viewing of a photo exhibition by BICC researcher and photographer Ahmed Khalifa who, as an eyewitness, documented the days of the Arab Spring and the Presidential elections in Egypt.

The photo exhibition can be visited in BICC’s working hours:

Mondays to Thursdays:
9:00 – 16:00 hrs
