Of Carve-ups and Constitutions: A Century on from Sykes-Picot (at UVic)


Course description

In the face of such volatility in the Middle East today, there has been increasing debate about redrawing the map of the Middle East and erasing the century-old, European-drawn borders. Indeed, ISIS proclaimed the “End of Sykes-Picot” when it spread from Syria to Iraq in 2014. Yet where exactly do the profound challenges to the status quo lie? In the delineation and imposition of colonial borders, or in how Arab leaders have since coped with their consequences? This talk will argue that the most significant challenge today is to build inclusive societies within those borders and in meeting the socioeconomic demands of the populations growing rapidly within them.
