A Talk by
The Hon. Ambassador Rajendra Abhyankar
Monday, November 19th, 1:00p - 2:00p,
Broad Conference Room in Fromm Hall
Spring, which in early 2011 unleashed a series of momentous political uprisings
in the Middle East starting with Tunisia and Egypt, was a seminal development
for the future of that volatile region. Ambassador Abhyankar, recently returned
from a monitoring trip to Syria, will discuss how the Arab Spring developed and
what lies ahead for Islam, democracy, and human rights in the region.
Ambassador Rajendra Abhyankar, an Indian diplomat who has spent thirteen years
in the Middle East in a long service of thirty-seven years, was the Consul
General for India in San Francisco from 1998 to 2001. He presently teaches a
graduate course on ‘The Practice of Diplomacy’ at the School of Public and
Environmental Affairs, Indiana University, Bloomington.
