Lafayette Square Is Tahrir Square with Steven Cook, Ph.D.

June 10 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Steven Cook

On June 1, U.S. federal law enforcement officers fired rubber bullets and chemical gas at peaceful protesters in front of the White House in Lafayette Square.

Steven Cook, Ph.D., Council on Foreign Relations, writes that “recent uprisings in the Middle East—specifically in Egypt and Turkey—and the responses they evoked from their governments, do provide a useful lens through which to understand America’s present crisis.”

Join us to discuss if Lafayette Square is analogous to Egypt’s Tahrir Square and what implications these events have on U.S. global power and leadership. Moderated by Megan Clark Torrey, CEO.
