The Political Science department was pleased to welcome back Dr. Kamran Bokhari for a lecture entitled “Islamists, Jihadists, Autocratic Meltdown & Geosectarianism.” Dr. Bokhari is a 1999 Political Science and 2002 MIAA (Global Studies) alumnus.
Dr. Bokhari is a senior analyst with the U. S. intelligence firm, Geopolitical Futures. He is also a senior fellow at the Center for Global Policy and a fellow with the Program on Extremism at George Washington University’s Center for Cyber & Homeland Security. He teaches the geopolitics of the Middle East & South Asia to Canadian military, intelligence, law enforcement, foreign policy and national security officials at the Security & Policy Institute in the University of Ottawa. He is the author of Political Islam in the Age of Democratization.
This lecture was made possible, in large part, thanks to the establishment of the Thomas Strong Chair for Middle Eastern Politics and the generous support of the Strong family. The department would like to thank Drs. David Romano and Djene Bajalan for their work in organizing this event.
