On Thursday 28 March, Prof. Gilles Kepel’s lecture will focus on the transition from the “Arab Spring” to the proclamation of the “Caliphate”.  The democratic dream was pursued differently in different countries of the region, in some cases the end result being the paradoxical creation of the Islamic State. Professor Kepel will analyse its causes, developments and regional and global consequences.

The talk, in French, will be held in room A-11 on the Lugano Campus, at 6.30pm. For more information:
