Can Morocco Democratize?

Apr 4 2005 12:00 am


Monday, April 4, 2005, 6:00-7:30PM

Marvine Howe, former Beirut Bureau Chief of The New York Times, will preview her about-to-be published Oxford University Press book, "Morocco: The Islamist Awakening and Other Challenges."

Ms. Howe covered the decolonization of North Africa during the late 1950s for both Time Magazine and The New York Times and her first book, "The Prince and I," was a best selling memoir of the late Moroccan King Hassan. In this newest work, she looks at Morocco in the new century under a new monarch, King Mohammed VI, and asks, "can an ancient Muslim kingdom embrace Western democracy in an era of deepening divisions between the Islamic World and the West?"

Ms. Howe will be introduced and questioned by Claudia Dreifus, Senior Fellow, World Policy Institute and the interviewer of the Science Times section of The New York Times.

Monday, April 4, 2005, 6:00-7:30PM . Wolff Conference Room, Second Floor, 65 Fifth Avenue (between East 13th -14th).
