3 années ago
09/12/2014 Seoul Plenary session 8: “Middle East in a global context” Since the last WPC in Monaco, the situation has consistently deteriorated in the Middle East, with the unexpected emergence of the “Islamic State”. The aim of this session will be to: explain this strategic surprise; analyse the behaviour of the main players, both outside the region (including the United States, the European Union and Russia) and inside (Turkey, Iran, Egypt and Israel); take stock of the nuclear negotiations underway with Iran; and last but not least, exchange views on what lies ahead. One particular painful aspect of this dramatic situation, the future of the Christian minorities, should be discussed.
