The Great Rivalry. Great Powers, Politics & Strategy in the New Middle East


The conference The Great Rivalry. Great Powers, Politics & Strategy in the New Middle East, organized by IsAG and EGIC (Euro Gulf Information Center) will be held on Thursday, 28 April 2016, from 15:00 to 18:00, in the Refettorio Hall of Palazzo San Macuto, Chamber of Deputies, Via del Seminario 76, 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.
