Dr. Ann Mosely Lesch '66, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, American University in Cairo, will present the 2014 Islamic Studies Annual Lecture, Troubled Political Transitions: A Perspective from Egypt.
Three years ago, Egyptians rose up to remove Hosni Mubarak's corrupt authoritarian regime. Since then, they have been on an emotional roller-coaster, from the •excitement of participating in three elections, to rising anger during •the Muslim Brotherhood's presidency, and then taking back to the• streets to remove that president.
Today, they face uncertainty as to• whether presidential elections will strengthen democracy or entrench •the security state. Given Egypt's centrality in the Middle East, it is important to examine and assess its troubled transition.

Coinciding with the rapid growth of immigration during the 1990s and 2000s there was a concomitant increase in the number of deportations. Currently, the federal government annually deports 400 thousand immigrants. At an estimated cost of $26,000 per deportation, the policy has cost over $50 billion since 2008. The production of a deportable alien requires a complex articulation of federal, state, and local levels. The presentation will review this articulation, discuss the implications for local areas, and elaborate on the effectiveness of the policy within the context of immigration reform.
