On Friday, October 21 from 3-4:30 p.m., the Center for Islamic Studies at AGTS hosted a panel discussion with international students from Missouri State University entitled "The Arab Spring: An Insider's Perspective." Students from Egypt, Morocco and Saudi Arabia offered their reflections on this surprising set of events that has politically rearranged the fabric of the Middle East and North Africa.

"The opportunity to hear about this series of recent events through the eyes of those whose futures and careers will be impacted," said AGTS president Byron D. Klaus before the event, "will serve to enrich our understanding, critique our assumptions and generally provide greater appreciation for the those who are presently experiencing significant and sometimes painful change."

The discussion was lead by Dr. Mark Hausfeld, director of the Center for Islamic Studies at AGTS and associate professor of Islamic Studies.
