The Hotchkiss Library of Sharon presents ‘The Middle East: Promise and Peril,’ a lecture by Dr. Joseph Baxer, on Sunday, June 25, 2017, at 4pm. The program is part of the Sundays at 4 series.
Dr. Baxer will address the current situation in the Middle East, from the crushed Arab Awakening and devastation in Syria to political upheaval in Turkey. Returning from spring visits to the Arab Gulf States and drawing on previous visits to Iran, Syria, Turkey, Egypt, and Israel, Dr. Baxer will reflect on this complex situation and invite a dialogue. Dr. Baxer is the Executive Director of the Intercultural Institute of Connecticut, President of the United Nations Association of Connecticut, and US representative to the United Nations for the London-based NGO, Strategies for Peace.
