From Revolution To Devolution? The Future Of The State In The Middle East

Friday, May 26 at 10:00 am to 5:30 pm

Pacific McGeorge School of Law, Grand Salon
3200 Fifth Ave., Sacramento, CA

Can federalism — or other forms of decentralization — help to manage or resolve identity conflicts in the Middle East? In this workshop, the first in a two-part symposium co-convened by the Global Center at McGeorge School of Law and the Center for Near Eastern Studies at UCLA, an interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners will
explore this question, examining dilemmas presented by decentralization in Syria, Israel/Palestine, Turkey, and the Gulf and drawing comparatively on experience elsewhere in the world.

Speakers:
Samer Araabi, Accountability Counsel
Aslı Bâli, UCLA
Sari Bashi, Human Rights Watch
Omar Dajani, McGeorge School of Law
Leila Hilal, New America
Haila al Mekaimi, Kuwait University
Balakrishna Menon Parameswaran, World Bank
Philip Roeder, UC San Diego
