The topic of this year’s World Affairs Institute is “The Arab Awakening: A Call to Change in the Middle East and Implications for U.S. Foreign Policy.” Because this issue is ever-evolving, we have created a blog with up-to-date information on current affairs in the region.
You can find the blog at http://waipittsburgh.wordpress.com — this link has been added to our Blogroll on the right-hand side for added convenience.
You can subscribe to this blog, bookmark the link for regularly updated information, or — if you are searching for information on a certain country — you can select the category from the list on the right-hand side. You’ll find resources on Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, the UAE, Yemen, and more.
If you’re searching for specific information regarding the Arab Spring that you’re not able to find, leave a comment and we’ll see what we can do!
