Branch Event: Middle East Update

Ref: C3746958

Conflict in the Middle East between (and within) national states, plus the intervention of outside powers, continues to produce war and destruction – and new waves of desperate migrants fleeing discrimination and suffering. However, there are shifts in the aims of outsiders and major realignments of local states into competing blocs. Cross-cutting such political developments are familiar rivalries between groups defined by ethnicity, religion or socio-economic class. What sort of future is all this likely to produce?

Course aim

To give a forward-looking overview of developments and realignments between Middle East states and to assess the impact of ethnic, cultural and political realities on stability in the region.
