In this eye opening talk, Reza Aslan, a world-renowned expert on the Middle East, talks about the historical and societal shifts in this part of the world. A new generation of youth are clamoring for their rights and freedoms -- and they drastically outnumber their elders. Seventy-five percent of the population of the Middle East is under the age of 35 and 50 percent is under the age of 25. The young, educated and politically motivated youth in places like Iran, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and beyond have a new vision -- one that represents their values, not the values of the generation that preceded them. What motivates the Muslim youth of today? What will the new Middle East look like? How will these sudden regime changes affect the world's economic and political climate? Aslan unravels the complexities of the new Middle East and shows what the future holds for this part of the world.
