CKC Speaker Series: Mr. James Dorsey

You are invited to the inaugural presentation of the CKC 

Speaker Series.

Mr. James Dorsey will discuss "Soccer as an Engine of Change and Assertion 
of Identity." This
 seminar explores soccer’s unique role in the battle against the yoke of autocratic rule, 
economic mismanagement and corruption as well as that of militant, highly politicized, 
violence-prone soccer fans in this year’s popular revolts. The role of the militants 
extends a tradition of soccer’s close association with politics across the Middle East and 
 North Africa that is evident until today inderbies in cities like Cairo, Amman, 
 Tehran and Riyadh.
