Schwedler Comments on Middle East Politics in Toronto Star

Jillian Schwedler, associate professor of political science, commented in a story about how King Abdullah II of Jordan appears to be one of the least threatened leaders among the countries in the Middle East facing popular unrest. According to Schwedler, Jordan does not have the same level of dissent that is found in other countries in the region. 

Professor Schwedler is an expert on protest and policing in Jordon. She is currently completing work on a manuscript, tentatively titled Protesting Jordan: Law, Space, Dissent.
