Crisis in the Geopolitics of MENA: “The more things change, the more they stay the same”

A year ago, the Middle East region was in a state of flux in certain ways, but seemed to be stabilising in others. Confrontation paradigms were giving way to what seemed to be de-escalation plans: Normalisation of relations between Saudi and Iran, and the widening of the Abraham Accords, among others. October 7 upended all of that – or did it? Dr HA Hellyer will examine how things have changed – and how, indeed, they’ve stayed the same.

This public talk will be conducted both in-person and online via Zoom on Wednesday, 17 April 2024, from 4.30 pm to 6 pm SGT. All are welcome to participate.
