Aili Tripp: Women’s Rights and Legal Reform: Contrasting the Maghrib and the Middle East
Thursday, September 28, 2017
3401 Sterling Hall
The talk explains this convergence of the three Maghrib countries around legal reforms and why these countries have been on a different trajectory than the Middle East regarding women’s rights over the past 15 years ago. It explains this divergence through comparative analysis of stability, democratic attitudes, political space and press freedom in the MENA region.
