What impact is the ‘Arab Spring’ having on the region’s minorities?
Tuesday 20 March, 7.30pm
With Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi

The Assyrians and Chaldeans are fleeing Iraq. Some 100,000 Coptic Christians are reported to have left Egypt , where churches have been burnt down and dozens murdered. The Libyan-born Jew, David Gerbi, was hounded out of Libya for wishing to restore a derelict synagogue.

As Islamist parties sweep to power across the Arab world, what does the future hold for the region’s non-Muslim minorities ?

Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi is a student at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and is a fellow at the Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum, where he has worked since January 2012. He is a prolific commentator on Middle East politics and his work has appeared in a wide range of publications – from the American Spectator to the Jerusalem Post and the Beirut Daily Star.
