Current Affairs Reading Group

Events | Young Professionals

Join the Current Affairs Reading Group to discuss Fareed Zakaria’s The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad. Sponsored by the Young Professionals, and open to anyone, the Reading Group meets every other month to discuss a book on a relevant international topic. This month we revisit a modern classic to help us analyze the democratic revolutions in North Africa. It is unlikely Zakaria or most analysts foresaw the events in Tunisia and the impact they would have on the region, but his book remains an insightful and readable analysis of what liberty and democracy means in a global context. It will be a great springboard for discussing the ongoing developments in the Arab world.
