Inside The Middle East | Entering A New Era

New Lecture – based on my latest book – published in February 2022

In the third decade of the twenty-first century, the Middle East is entering a new era. The era is both defined by, and a result of, a combination of ancient and modern, domestic, regional, and international processes.

Iran and Turkey each strive to position themselves as the regional superpower. In parallel, the people of the region struggle to overcome increasing domestic challenges. These developments, combined with an escalating struggle over path, identity, and direction, could result in a new model of statehood in the Arab world.

While some countries take the turbulent path toward a possible new statehood model, others are fighting for their sovereignty and survival.

All of this is occurring while Western hegemony in the Middle East is coming to an end and the Eastern giants are on the rise.

Inside The Middle East | Entering A New EraThis briefing takes you on an eye-opening journey through the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East today.

It challenges common Western concepts, narratives, and theories, and provides predictions about some of the most central regional issues of the day.

This distinct understanding allows you to build a multidimensional picture of the geopolitical reality of the Middle East today and provides an unparalleled foundation for navigating the events of tomorrow.

The new era we are entering is fraught with challenges and full of opportunities. Is it a new dawn? Or is it a setting sun?
