About the Speech:
 
The rise and expansion of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) represents a major turning point in Middle East politics. ISIS now controls territory in the heart of the Middle East roughly the size of Great Britain and has morphed into a global security problem. The United States is currently mobilising the international community to confront the Islamic State, in what U.S President Barack Obama claims is just the start of a “long term campaign” of military re-engagement in the Arab-Islamic world. Against this backdrop, Dr. Hashemi explored some of the background issues related to the rise and expansion of ISIS and asked how the international community should respond.
 
About the Speaker: 
 
Dr. Nader Hashemi is the Director of the Center for Middle East Studies and an Associate Professor of Middle East and Islamic Politics at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. He obtained his doctorate from the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto and previously was an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Northwestern University and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the UCLA Global Institute. He is the author of Islam, Secularism and Liberal Democracy: Toward a Democratic Theory for Muslim Societies and co-editor of The People Reloaded: The Green Movement and the Struggle for Iran’s Future and most recently The Syria Dilemma. His writings have appeared in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, among others.
