unknown1The Brookings Doha Center cordially invite you to one of their discussions on Wednesday 29th February from 6 pm – 7:30 pm in West Bay.

Speaking at the discussion will be Gilles Kepel who is both a Professor at the Institute of Political Studies (IEP) and Research Director, National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). Salman Shaikh, the Director of Brookings Doha Center will moderate the talk.

This is the second year of the Arab revolutions and there is a fragile transition to democracy as well as the rise of Islamist political parties. In Egypt and Tunisia, long-banned Islamist groups have emerged as the major political forces, occupying large majorities in parliament. Even in countries absent of immediate transitions – from Kuwait to Morocco – Islamists are experiencing unprecedented successes as a result of the political openings of the “Arab Spring”. Gilles Kepel, a leading historian and expert on political Islam will discuss the dynamics of the movement’s emergence into the political limelight, and its implications for the democratic transitions underway in the Arab world.

To reserve a place for yourself and/or a guest, please RSVP to or call the Brookings Doha Center at +974-4422 7800.
