Rumi speaks at SU and CU

Violent extremism in Pakistan, much in the news of late, will be the subject of two talks by ICOA resident writer Raza Rumi next week at two regional universities.

Raza will give a talk on Tuesday, April 5 at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School. The talk, titled “The State of Democracy in South Asia,” will take place at 12:30-1:30 pm in 341 Eggers. The talk is sponsored by the South Asia Center at the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs. More about the talk here.

On Thursday, April 7, Raza will give a talk at Cornell University titled “Pakistan’s Battle Against Violent Extremism.” The talk, under the auspices of the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies, will take place from 12:15-1:30 pm in G-08 Uris Hall. More about that talk here.

The board members of ICOA are grateful to Raza for his willingness to engage broadly with many audiences in the region and share his deeply personal and professional perspectives about these timely and difficult issues.
