Amre Moussa on the Arab Spring: An Agenda for Change

This past Monday on June 20, 2011, the Spinelli Group hosted a conference on the “Arab Spring” at the European Parliament in Brussels with Secretary General of the Arab League and 2011 Presidential candidate Amre Moussa.

"At the start of the event, former Prime Minister of Belgium, Guy Verhofstadt introduced Moussa as both a prime witness and a key player to the events happening in the Arab world. He also acknowledged Europe’s lack of understanding that the revolutions starting back in January were about democracy, not religion, and that their slow response to act due to this lack of understanding was unacceptable, enforcing that the same mistakes cannot be made again"
