In honor of World Press Freedom Day, internationally acclaimed journalist Rami Khouri comes to AADL to share his latest research on politics and economics in the Middle East. In this talk, Khouri focuses on the Middle East and the links between press freedoms and other destructive trends, such as growing poverty and declining political engagement. He will also link Middle Eastern trends with global ones, showing that these are global problems and not specific to one area or culture.
In dialogue with Rami Khouri is Juan Cole, journalist and Richard P. Mitchell Collegiate Professor of History at the University of Michigan.
Rami Khouri is a Palestinian-Jordanian and U.S. citizen whose family resides in Beirut, Amman, and Nazareth. He is a senior fellow and journalism professor at American University of Beirut and a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School.
