Harvard Law School visiting scholar and terrorism expert Hassan Abbas will discuss the Arab world on Wednesday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fort Howard Theatre, Bemis International Center at St. Norbert College.

The presentation is the final part of the national Great Decisions lecture series, an eight-week program discussing international issues of interest to the community.

Abbas is a Ph.D. candidate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. He has established himself as one of the leading experts on the terrorist organizations that are based in the Pakistan-Afghanistan region. Abbas served multiple terms in the Pakistani government and has regularly appeared as an international terrorism analyst on MSNBC.

Topics for the Great Decisions series are selected by the Foreign Policy Association of America and are intended to provide a local forum for discussion on current political and economic issues of the day. The speakers are selected by participating colleges and universities. St. Norbert College is one of only two Wisconsin schools that presents the entire series.
