The Middle East After ISIS
Dr Lina Khatib, Head, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House
While the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria continues to hold significant territory, the group has recently come under growing military pressure and has been squeezed financially. However, even if the group is weakened militarily, its grip over parts of Syria and Iraq is the product of wider economic and political factors that are likely to continue to produce an environment amenable to extremism unless they are adequately addressed. Lina Khatib will reflect on the coalition campaign against ISIS and consider what the future of the group in the Middle East might be.
To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. If you would like to register your interest, please RSVP to Linda Bedford. We will contact you to confirm your attendance.
