The mass movements for change that swept the Middle East-North Africa region (MENA) in 2011 gave vast populations hope for a better future. Yet, the transitional period has been marked by marginalization of women and minorities, divisiveness, economic decline and violence. Can citizens in MENA reset and reinvigorate these transitions?  
 
On October 22 WLP and Cultural Conversations of the Foreign Policy Institute at SAIS are convening leading activists, officials, and scholars from the region to discuss the vast changes that have occurred since the start of the “Arab Spring” and the current dynamics and opportunities that will shape the region’s future. The event will begin with a screening of WLP’s new documentary,Because Our Cause Is Just, on the backlash against women’s rights post-Arab Spring, followed by a panel discussion and conversation with the audience.
