Division within the Jordanian royal family. A former Crown Prince arrested. A whirlwind of rumors surrounding a failed coup. A blow to Jordan's image and reputation as a stable presence in a dynamic region. Join Sean Yom, Associate Professor of Political Science at Temple University, for a rapid response and conversation on what is currently unfolding in Jordan.
