This evening lecture presents and analyzes major processes and events that have transformed governments, organizations and borders in the Middle East. These include the "Arab Spring;" the civil wars in Syria, Libya and Yemen; the revolution and counter-revolution in Egypt, the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS); the occupation of territories in Syria and Iraq, and the US-led war; and Iran's efforts to become a nuclear power.
The speaker is Dr. Eytan Gilboa, former professor of Political Science and Communication at Bar-Ihan University in Israel. He is presently chair and academic director of the Israel Public Diplomacy Forum (IPD) which is a non-profit, non- partisan, educational organization established to advance international understanding of the Middle East.
