Boisi Center Resource Highlights

The Boston Globe covered the Refugee Portal's arrival at Harvard Divinity School during the week of November 5, 2017. HDS students connected with Gazans as well as refugee camps in Erbil, Iraq; Amman, Jordan and Berlin, Germany. The portal will arrive at BC on Friday, November 10, in anticipation of programming starting November 13, 2017. 

Check out this article in the Economist, which discusses the Muslim Brotherhood. Once a force for revolution and change during the Arab Spring, the group is now in hiding from the same autocratic governments it once hoped to overthrow. Is there a future for a political Islam? On September 12, David DiPasquale will discuss this question over lunch at the Boisi Center.
