Event Description

 Civil Rights in Muslim Democracies

January 28, 2013

4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Berkley Center 3rd floor conference room

Georgetown University

Revolutionary transformations in the Middle East and North Africa have opened up new possibilities for democratization in Muslim-majority countries. Much will turn on whether and how countries in the region combine institutional stability and free elections in practice. This panel discussion will address a third ingredient of successful democratic states: equal rights of citizens under the law, with a focus on women’s equality, religious minorities, and freedom of expression. The discussion will feature Berkley Center senior research fellow Jocelyne Cesari, along with the center’s Jose Casanova, Daniel Brumberg (Georgetown University), and Nader Hashemi (University of Denver).

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
