IU McKinney Alumnus Interviewed from Egypt
Mohamed Arafa, S.J.D. ’13, was interviewed on Indianapolis radio station WFYI for a segment on the morning news program that aired on July 8 concerning the violence in his native country, Egypt.
Arafa is spending two months in Egypt before returning to IU McKinney to teach in Fall 2013. He said in the radio interview that the future of the Middle East is dependent in part on the United States helping to create stability.
“To support the economic, the social, and even the democratic transition itself specifically in the area of human rights,” it is important for the United States to support Egypt in that perspective, Arafa said in the interview. The audio version of the news segment can be found at this link.
Arafa is an assistant professor of criminal law and criminal justice at the Alexandria University Faculty of Law in Egypt. He said in the interview that he will use the experience of witnessing the changes in Egypt this summer in his teaching.
