The Great Rivalry: Great Powers, Politics & Strategy in the New Middle East
DATE: 28 APRIL, 2016
LOCATION: VIA GREGORIANA 12 - ROME
The Middle East is in turmoil and that turmoil is producing international tremors. Understanding the strategies deployed by the world’s major powers such as the US, China, Russia, and many in Europe, is therefore a priority. Spurred by a strange brew of self- and international interests, international interventions are simultaneously pressuring and empowering new strata of local and regional actors that will certainly shape the coming decades. This session navigates contemporary uncertainties and seeks clarity for what is at stake, levels of commitment and emerging and disintegrating alliances.
