Video: “Paris and Beyond: Making Sense of the World” faculty panel

January 23, 2015


The eyes of the world are on France in the wake of the deadly shootings at the office of satirical weekly “Charlie Hebdo” and a supermarket in Paris. The Jan. 7 acts of terrorism have sparked questions about radical Islam, European unity and conflicts in the Middle East. The Jackson School of International Studies hosted a faculty roundtable discussion on Jan. 21 to try to make sense of events in Paris and beyond. Faculty panelists included Daniel Chirot, Kathie Friedman, Ellis Goldberg, Reşat Kasaba, Sabine Lang, Noam Pianko and Anand Yang (moderator). Topics addressed by faculty included changes in Europe, politics in European countries, status of immigrants in France, Muslim politics and Muslim youth in Europe and beyond.
