Princeton Professors join American University of Beirut for a Social Justice & Development Conference

Four Princeton University Professors spent the past week at the American University of Beirut (AUB).  The main event was a two-day conference cosponsored by Princeton University’s Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice.  The conference, “Social Justice in the Arab World since 2010: Changing Conditions, Mobilizations, and Policies addressed social movement changes and emerging social justice policies, or the lack thereof, at both the national and local policy levels. The professors spent the remainder of their time providing lectures, including “The Role of Academia During Trump’s Presidency“ and meeting with AUB professors and scholars.
