Lifelong Learning Niagara is a third age learning organization providing learning programs and experiences for adults 50+ living in the Niagara region.

Presenter: Dr. Atif Kubursi, Emeritus Professor of Economics, McMaster University

The old Arab order is crumbling. A new order is evolving. Though its details are still unclear, this new order will be shaped by a number of emerging realities. It is no longer called Arab Spring. This has been replaced by Arab Awakening, Arab Upheaval, Arab Revolt, Arab Winter, and many more.

The new order will take many seasons and many years before it takes root and shape. Dr. Kubursi will discuss the many existential developments and challenges, such as economics, secularism, democracy, price of oil, refugees, and terrorism.
