de Waal to kick off 2011-2012 Emile Bustani Seminar Series


Dr. Alexander de Waal — the executive director of the World Peace Foundation, now in its 101st year, and a resident at the Fletcher School — will kick-off the Emile Bustani Middle East Seminar Series today, Oct. 25, at 4:30 p.m. in E51-395.

de Waal, a prominent writer and researcher on African issues, is a regular commentator on contemporary Sudan through his African Arguments blog "Making Sense of Sudan." He will deliver his talk on the subject of "Prospects for Peace and Stability in Two Sudans."

The Emile Bustani Middle East Seminar is organized under the auspices of the MIT Center for International Studies, which conducts research on contemporary international issues and provides an opportunity for faculty and students to share perspectives and exchange views. Each year, the Bustani Seminar invites scholars, journalists, consultants and other experts from the Middle East, Europe and the United States to MIT to present recent research findings on contemporary politics, society and culture, and economic and technological development in the Middle East.
