The Facebook & Twitter Revolution in the Middle East

Flinders Global Law and Governance Research Cluster is hosting a public discussion entitled:  The Facebook & Twitter Revolution in the Middle East: How should the international Community respond?

The discussion will focus on such issues as to whether there is a right to democracy in the Middle East, how should other nations respond to the revolutionary movements, the gender issues involved, and the other human rights engaged in the struggle such as the right to life, freedom from torture and freedom of association. 

Other issues to be discussed will be the role of the United Nations - are the hundreds of deaths in Libya engaging a doctrine known as the Responsibility to Protect which might require Security Council intervention?  Another fascinating feature is the growth of the social network movement to encompass revolutionary movements.
