The world watched over the past month as a modern revolution took place in an ancient nation.

The recent overthrow of Egyptian president Husni Mubarak is a landmark event in the history of modern Egypt. It also has profound repercussions for the Middle East. 

This week, the University of the Fraser Valley will play host to a guest lecture by Professor Rex Brynen of the political science department at Montreal’s McGill University.

Brynen will examine both how the popular revolution happened and what it means, including its implications for regional security, the Arab-Israeli peace process, and the cause of democratic reform in the Arab world and beyond.

The Struggle for Democracy in Egypt will be presented on Wednesday, Feb. 23, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in
Room A225-229 (boardroom) of the UFV Abbotsford campus.

Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.
