Guest: Rami Khouri
Despite the ongoing deadly conflicts and challenging political transitions taking place throughout the Middle East, journalist RAMI KHOURI, a columnist for the Beirut-based Daily Star, is guardedly optimistic about the future of democracy in the region. He points to the significance of constitutional developments in countries such as Egypt and Tunisia and the fact that millions of Arabs are participating in elections and public debate for the first time. In this hour of Radio Times, Khouri joins us in the studio to talk about current crisis in Egypt and Syria and the prospects for democracy in the Arab world.
