Description

The news coming out of the Middle East is almost always pessimistic. Terrorism, religious fanaticism and misogyny dominate headlines about the region. But Bessma Momani is optimistic about the Middle East's future. She's professor of political science at the University of Waterloo and the Balsillie School of International Affairs, and Senior Fellow at CIGI. She says Arab youth are key to moving the region in a more positive direction. She joins Piya Chattopadhyay to discuss the Middle East's potential, beyond the headlines.
