Aspen Ministers Forum Session XIV (July 2012)

In July, 2012, the Aspen Ministers Forum convened to discuss the remarkable transitions underway in the Arab world, in Prague, a city which served as an apposite backdrop for the topic at hand, and its lessons for democratic transition were both well-incorporated into the discussions and much appreciated by the Forum. The Forum held three days of thoughtful and candid discussions on the nature of the Arab uprisings, their trajectories, and opportunities for the international community to enable peaceful paths forward for states in transition. With the additional counsel of preeminent experts in Political Islam, the Arab world, and conflict and stability, the Forum was able to conclude with several strong points of agreement and opportunities for action. The meeting also coincided with the launch of Aspen Institute’s newest international partner, Aspen Institute Prague.
