Understanding Conflict in the Middle East (at Mary Winspear)


Course description

In the aftermath of the Arab Spring, tensions in the Middle East continue to escalate, displacing millions of people and creating the greatest refugee problem since the end of the Second World War. In this lecture, we will focus on the origins of unrest in the region, examine how history has influenced current events, and try to understand the implications that these events are having both in the Middle East and around the world. While recognizing the negative impact of colonial and neo-colonial involvement over the past century, this presentation will suggest that what is happening in the region today is not so much a “Clash of Civilizations” as a “Crisis of Modernity”, and until we fully understand the nature of this crisis, we will not be able to participate effectively in a solution.
