          The Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens Memorial Lecture Series continues here at UC Hastings with “From the Middle East to the West: The Transformation of Authoritarianism to Populism,” by Leila Fadel, Edward R. Murrow Press Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, on March 20, 2017.

          “Ms. Fadel is one of the premier authorities on Middle East politics,” says Scott Dodson, Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Law at UC Hastings. “We are so grateful to the generosity of the Stevens family for enriching the intellectual life of the campus community by making this event possible.”

          Leila Fadel is the Edward R. Murrow Press Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, and most recently was National Public Radio’s international correspondent based in Cairo, Egypt. From 2011 to 2012, Fadel served as the Cairo bureau chief for the Washington Post, where she reported on a wave of revolts and aftermaths in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and Syria.

          Previously, she covered the Iraq war for nearly five years with Knight Ridder, McClatchy newspapers, and later the Washington Post. Her foreign coverage of the devastating human toll of the Iraq war earned her the George R. Polk award in 2007. In 2013, her foreign coverage for NPR of a bloody coup in Egypt and the aftermath, earned her the Lowell Thomas Award from the Overseas Press Club of America. Fadel holds a BA in journalism from Northeastern University and speaks conversational Arabic.

          About the Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens Memorial Lecture Series:
          UC Hastings established the Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens Lecture Series to honor the memory, life, and work of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, a member of the UC Hastings class of 1989. Based on consultation with his family, this series emphasizes law and public policy as used in practice to advance global understanding and peace. "Gathering experts to discuss law and foreign policy as it relates to actual legal practice in the promotion of global understanding presents a fitting opportunity to further the legacy of Chris's style of diplomacy and his life's work," said Tom Stevens, Ambassador Stevens' brother.
