This week marks a year since the unrest that swept across the Middle East began to boil over in Tunisia. Dictators were swept out in Egypt and Libya during what became known as Arab Spring and the calls for change continue in places like Syria, Bahrain and Yemen. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about what change means in the middle east. How will reform be accomplished and what role should U.S. policy play. Join us with your thoughts, Thursday at 9:00.
