Lectures by Pascal Weber

Pascal Weber stood on Cairo’s Tahrir Square when dictator Mubarak was overthrown. Three years later, he stood there again when army chief Sisi putsched short-term President Mursi out of office and restored the old order. He was in Libya when Gaddafi fell. He was in Syria when Assad engulfed his country in civil war to save his rule. And he was in Iraq when IS proclaimed the caliphate, and he was there again when the Iraqi army recaptured the city of Mosul and defeated IS. To this end, Pascal Weber traveled to Yemen, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan.

Pascal Weber lays out how all the wars and crises came about, what the backgrounds are, and how they are connected. “The Arab Spring is the culmination of profound social change in the Arab world. It is a revolution that is far from finished, and its end is not in sight today.”

“What next America”

The USA agrees on nothing: abortion, weapons, climate, civil rights, education, history, media, even the recognition of election results and thus the foundation of the democratic system are being called into question. Where is the USA heading? Is there even a threat of a second American civil war, as some are predicting? SRF USA correspondent Pascal Weber provides the answers.
