On Thursday in Cairo, President Obama will give a major, long-awaited address to the Muslim world.  His words will be followed closely by millions of Arab and Muslims looking for signals about U.S. policy, including the extent to which democracy and human rights will be a core concern of the Obama administration.  As many of you know, CSID and POMED helped organize an open letter to President Obama, now signed by more than 1500 policy experts, analysts, and other voices from more than 60 countries, urging him to make support for democracy and human rights in the Middle East a priority of his administration.

 

Please join us only hours after Thursday"s address is delivered in Cairo for a discussion with leading American and Arab experts to examine the speech and what it may signal about the Obama administration"s approach to the region. 

 

Does the president"s speech signal a shift in U.S. policy toward the Arab and Muslim world?  Has the speech outlined specific steps the U.S. will take to restore its credibility in the region?  How was the president"s speech perceived in the Arab street?  To what extent does the speech address issues of human rights and democratic reform?  How does the choice of a venue impact the reception of Obama"s message by Arab audiences?
