H.E. Hussein Hassouna, ambassador of the League of Arab States, will discuss “Current Challenges Facing the Arab World” during an address at Brigham Young University Thursday, Oct. 13, at 11 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

A native of Egypt, Hassouna received his doctoral degree in international law from Cambridge University in England, followed by a distinguished career in international diplomacy, serving as a member of the Permanent Mission of Egypt to the United Nations and as a member of the Egyptian delegation to successive Middle East peace negotiations in Cairo, Tel Aviv and Washington, D.C., that led to the signing of the Egyptian–Israeli peace treaty.
