Upcoming Events

July 2 | Luncheon: Qatari Ambassador Al-Thani

Along with becoming a leading power in the region, Qatar has recently been at odds with some of its neighbors on issues such as: its rapprochement with Iran and Turkey; the role of political Islam; or its support of the UN-backed Libyan government in Tripoli - which is under attack from General Haftar, the militia leader backed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Ambassador Al-Thani will discuss the outlook for Qatar, its evolving strategic regional roles and its ever growing influence in the broader Middle East. 

July 16 | On the Struggles for Democracy and the Future of Libya

Since the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, Libya has experienced extreme turmoil and instability. Major developments happening in Libya place peace in the background and democracy far away. Ambassador Wafa Bughaighis will speak more to this, utilizing her experience as the Government of National Accord's ambassador to the U.S. Join the World Affairs Council of Greater Houston to learn more about the future of Libya at this event.

July 29 | A Taste of Thailand - Dinner with Honorary Consul
