As part of the San Diego World Affairs Council's Annual Meeting, Necla Tschirgi, professor of Practice, Human Security and Peacebulding for the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies, will assess the Arab Spring, including developments in Egypt and in other Arab countries currently experiencing virulent uprisings.

A native of Turkey, Tschirgi received her BA and MA in political science at the American University of Beirut and her PhD in political economy at the University of Toronto. Her extensive international career has spanned research, policy analysis, teaching, research management and grant making. During the last 15 years, she has increasingly specialized in conflict prevention and peacebuilding — focusing on the nexus between security and development.

Tschirgi's lecture promises to be a lively discussion from a unique expert perspective. In addition to the lecture, SDWAC members are welcome to participate in elections for our Board of Directors.
