Centre for Geopolitics

Providing historically grounded approaches to enduring geopolitical problems

Middle East conflicts have long experienced destructive and counter-productive foreign interventions. Often western powers such as the USA are criticised for both intervening (George W. Bush) and for not intervening (Donald Trump). The panel will discuss the interests which foreign powers pursue in the region and consider whether a framework might be established which channels violent interventions into guarantees for peace.
