Date: 02 October 2019
Location: Centre for American Studies,
The Great Rivalry conference series examines the evolution of geopolitics in the wider Middle East and North Africa, on an annual basis, with high-level scholars, practitioners and policy-makers. The 2019 chapter gravitated around how states interact with non-state actors such as terrorist groups, proxies, religious and political minorities, among others. The strategic flash points of Libya, Syria and Iraq were explored in depth.
