Friday, April 13th: IPSA 2012 Conference – Revolution: People, Politics and Change

IPSA 2012 Conference – Revolution: People, Politics and Change
NYU (60 Washington Sq. S., Manhattan)
9am-7pm
Free, registration required

IPSA’s 2012 conference will explore the recent events in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, as well as other citizen-led political movements past and present, to better understand the commonalities and differences in successful and attempted large-scale change. Through conversations led by various experts, academics and practitioners, we will examine the players, politics and contexts that have been at the center of recent movements and revolutions and their implications for creating long-term and meaningful change in societies. Varying perspectives and topics, such as women and the MENA movements, the role of social media in change, and developing movements in Latin America and Asia will be presented in the day’s events.
