Who is talking?
Ziad Majed is a Lebanese French scholar. He is an associate professor at the American University of Paris and coordinator of the Middle East Studies program.
He authored and co-authored books, papers and articles on Lebanon, Syria, the question of Palestine and political transitions in the Arab region.
His latest books on Syria (in French) are “Dans la tête de Bachar Al-Assad” (Inside the Mind of Bachar Al-Assad), with Subhi Hadidi and Farouk Mardam-Bey, Actes Sud 2018 and “Syrie la révolution orpheline”, Actes Sud 2014.
About what?
The lecture will explore the founding moments in the modern history of the Middle East.
It will analyze the revolutionary process that started ten years ago in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Bahrein and Syria with its failures and successes, its legacy and ongoing challenges and conflicts. It will also explain why the second revolutionary wave that shook Sudan, Algeria, Iraq and Lebanon in 2018 and 2019 shows that this process is far from over.
