VOMENA 12:19:2012

Pro-democracy rallies are common in Bahrain, where 25 people were arrested Monday during a protest coinciding with the anniversary of two activists killed in 1994

The prolonged civil war in Syria has devastated that country’s infrastructure and resulted in tens of thousands of people dead and millions more displaced. This week, VOMENA talks about the role of regional and international actors in the Syrian civil war with Bassam Haddad, Director of the Middle East Studies Program at George Mason University. Also, VOMENA gets an update on Bahrain’s pro-democracy movement from Toby Jones, Professor of history and Director of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Rutgers University.
