This is a crucial period for the Arab Gulf and the Middle East’s political landscape in general. From the U.S. withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, to the elections in Iraq and Lebanon and Tunisia to the neverending wars in Yemen and Syria; the wider region is awash in crisis. 


Dr. Mitchell Belfer explained the implications and the possible future scenarios of the changed region.



Lecture Series: The Middle East in Crisis



The Euro-Gulf Information Centre, (EGIC), is proud to announce its latest Lecture Series ‘The Middle East in Crisis’ to explore the defining challenges in Middle Eastern political life. The lectures will bring scholars and practitioners of security, war and peace—from around the world—to address Rome’s diverse audience; academics, students, diplomatic personnel and others interested in the politics of the Middle East. Voltaire once said, ‘I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.’ At EGIC we encourage debate as we believe that giving space to different opinions is necessary to better understand the complexities of the Middle East.
