World Affairs Forum opens Friday with session on Egypt

A UW-Green Bay faculty panel will be joined (via Skype) by a University alumnus when a new series, the World Affairs Forum, makes its debut from noon to 1:30 p.m. this Friday (Feb. 10) in the 1965 Room of the University Union. The topic is democracy and change in Egypt. The special guest is 1999 Environmental Science and Policy Master’s graduate Magued Youssef, a native of Egypt. Prof. David Coury of Humanistic Studies describes this Friday’s discussion as the first in a series that will focus on upcoming elections or political trends in key regions of the world; future sessions are expected to involve Russia, China and elections in the European Union. All discussions are open to students, faculty, staff and the general public. The World Affairs Forum is a collaboration of faculty in Global Studies, Humanistic Studies and Political Science.
