Overview

The Middle East has, for the past six years, been exposed to an unprecedented level of intra-state violence, political turmoil and economic uncertainty. The very foundations of the nation state in Syria, Libya and Yemen remain under threat and Arab states continue to be fundamentally divided over the crises and problems facing the region.


Ahmed Aboul Gheit, secretary-general of the League of Arab States, will discuss the challenges confronting decision-makers in the Middle East. He will assess the near-term prospects of securing a political resolution to the conflicts in Syria, Libya and Yemen and the stabilization of Iraq. What are Arab states doing to work towards peace in the region? Is the Arab Peace Initiative proving a useful framework in settling these conflicts? And, moving forward, what will be the flashpoints and emerging threats to security in the region?
