Varying perspectives and topics, such as women and the MENA movements, the role of social media in change, and developing movements in Latin America and Asia will be presented in the day's events.
The conference will also feature an original photography exhibit, "A Place Called Tahrir," by Sabelo Narasimhan, MPA Candidate 2012 at NYU Wagner.
