On 5th April, 2011, London Undergraduate Program Director, Professor Greg Kucich convened a Program Forum on the topic: “From Tahir to Trafalgar? Protest, Petrol Bombs, Policy”. The forum was held in response to recent wide-spread protests in London over government spending cuts, as well as the ongoing movements for political reform in the Middle East.
The discussions drew upon the first-hand experience of students who transferred to London from Notre Dame’s Cairo Program, as well as the political and cultural studies expertise of two London Undergraduate Program professors, and resulted in a lively debate, especially as the floor was opened to questions and commentary from the audience of students and faculty.
