The Rome Dialogue X
Let's Talk About Sects
The Reemergence of Sectarianism in the Middle East and What it Means for Europe
Date: 2 March 2017
The Euro-Gulf Information Centre organised this conference to illustrate the rising sectarianism in the Middle East and its spill-over in Europe.
Sectarian propaganda and its reflective violence has unleashed a tidal wave of challenges to the Middle East and, by extension, those areas - including Europe, including Finland - that are proximate. This seminar has addressed this key ideological threat to peace and stability in the region, while reflecting on solutions to contain it.
