Kurdistan, a mountainous area made up of parts of Turkey, Iraq, Iran, and Syria, is home to one of the largest ethnic groups in the region: the Kurds. Most in the West know them as a close U.S. ally in the Middle East and a bulwark against the expansion of the so-called Islamic State. Dr. Clark will discuss what current regional and internal state conflicts in the greater Kurdish region mean for the future of Kurdistan.

Public invited. No reservations needed. Pay at door. $10 members/$15 non-members. Non-members can sign up for a free e-mail membership and get member pricing. Free parking. Presented by the World Affairs Council of Western Michigan.
