The Paris School of International Affairs, in collaboration with the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and IE University’s School of Politics, Economics & Global Affairs is delighted to announce a new episode of the webinar series: Scholars in dialogue: six conversations on the modern Middle East

This fourth episode will focus on the regional and global interests by delving into the question of how the interests and behaviour of the United States and Middle East states affect the Israeli / Palestinian conflict (both historically and currently).

The panelists will be: 

  • Elham Fakhro, Research Associate, Chatham House MENA program; Research Fellow, Exeter University
  • Hussein Ibish, Senior Resident Scholar, Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington;
  • Daniel C. Kurtzer, S. Daniel Abraham Professor of Middle East Policy Studies, Princeton University;
  • Nimrod Novik, Former senior advisor on foreign policy to the late Shimon Peres
  • Moderator: Cristina Gallach, Former UN Under-Secretary General, and Former Spanish State-Secretary for Foreign Affairs

The full program of the series is listed at the bottom of the invitation. Links to register to the following webinars will be provided in the upcoming weeks.

Borne out of a shared need for in-depth information on Middle East politics, the war between Israel and Hamas, and the broader history of the region, the Scholars in dialogue series features internationally renowned and highly informed academics and experts across multiple disciplines and perspectives. Moderated by a diverse roster of experienced journalists, each conversation will reflect multiple positions with sensitivity and understanding.
