Robert Fisk: Arab Awakening

What's worth fighting for in a world riddled by abuses of power, violence, and religious war? Robert Fisk has been writing about issues facing the Middle East for more than 30 years as a corespondent for The Independent. A steadfast pacifist, Fisk believes that journalism must always challenge the status quo, and always question common discourse.

This episode of CJSR's Think presents Robert Fisk's keynote lecture that he delivered in Edmonton on January 31st, 2013 as part of the University of Alberta's International Week 2013. The lecture, entitled 'Arab Awakening: Are we hearing the truth?' probes deeply into the complex problems that the world is facing as we attempt to reconcile our societal differences, and presents Fisk's perspectives on how we can begin to forge a path to global peace.
