Assistant Professor of Political Science Dr. Juli Minoves-Triquell recently joined former members of Congress and governmental officials from around the world to present at the Bahrain International Symposium at the University of Bahrain. Bahrain is a small island country situated in the Persian Golf.
Sponsored by Bahrain University and the Bahrain American Council, the international symposium took place March 31 through April 2 and examined the Persian Gulf country’s experience after ten years of political reform and constitutional institutions.
As chair of the Constitutional Panel at the symposium, Dr. Minoves-Triquell played an important role thanks to his expertise in monarchies and international politics.
Other important featured keynote speakers included President of the Islamic World Academy of Sciences and former Prime Minister of Jordan Dr. Abdelsala Al Majali, former Congressmen Dan Burton and Solomon Ortiz, and Vice President of Bahrain’s Constitutional Court, Professor Mohammed Al Mashhadany.
Dr. Minoves-Triquell, who recently served as his home country Andorra’s ambassador to the United Nations and Foreign Minister, joined the History-Political Science Department in Fall 2012.
