New Whiggery with Shadi Hamid

Event start date

May 8, 2023

The Institute on Religion and Democracy will be hosting its monthly New Whiggery Dinner with Shadi Hamid, a senior fellow for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution, at 6:30 PM ET on May 8. Hamid will be discussing his recent book, The Problem of Democracy: America, the Middle East, and the Rise and Fall of an Idea.

Dinner will be served beforehand at 6:00 PM ET. As always, invitees are encouraged to bring guests, as there will be a significant amount of time reserved for socializing and networking.

New Whiggery gatherings are by invitation only. If you would like to be considered for an invitation, please reach out to Collin Bastian at
