Dear Alumni,

In his comments on President Mubarak's resignation, President Obama said it was a beginning, not the end, of transition in Egypt. The same might be said of the entire Middle East.

As events have unfolded in that region, the Harvard Kennedy School community continues to be active in helping to provide interpretation and analysis for audiences worldwide. I wanted to take a moment to let you know about some of the resources that we are making available as everyone tries to understand the implications of what is taking place.
For example, the Institute of Politics is presenting a JFK Jr. Forum event tonight (February 16) at 7 p.m. on "Egypt: The Power of People" moderated by Tarek Masoud, assistant professor of public policy at HKS. The Forum can be watched live.
In addition, the Harvard Kennedy Kennedy School homepage features an evolving story on Egypt, which is being updated daily with faculty commentary, videos, media interviews, and stories about current events in the Middle East.
There, you can see a previous Forum event on "Changing Arab Politics." The event was moderated by Nicholas Burns, Sultan of Oman Professor of the Practice of International Relations, and includes several Harvard and Kennedy School faculty members. The Harvard Kennedy School Twitter feed and Facebook page have a combined audience of more than 17,000 and have been extremely active during this time. You can access these sites to see what fellow alumni and friends of the School are saying about the transformation that is now under way. The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs has launched an excellent blog on Power and Policy. The topics cover a variety of international issues, and there have been some exciting posts by Dean Graham Allison and Nicholas Burns on Egypt.
I hope you will find these resources to be valuable as events continue to unfold in the Middle East and beyond.
