Civil Wars: The Future of the Middle East and Implications for Global Security

Sep 17, 2019 - Sep 17, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Omni William Penn Hotel
530 William Penn Place
Lawrence Welk Room
Pittsburgh, PA 15219

The civil wars in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Libya have had devastating effects on the populations in these countries, and they have drawn in most of the regional and international powers into a destructive conflict trap. This is reshaping the Middle East in ways that will have profound consequences for the region as well as for the United States and other international powers. Building on his recently released book, Escaping the Conflict Trap: Toward Ending Civil Wars in the Middle East (co-edited with Paul Salem), Ross Harrison unpacks the complexities of these civil wars and what they mean for the region and for us.

Ross Harrison is a senior resident fellow at the Middle East Institute in Washington D.C. and is on the faculties of Georgetown University and the University of Pittsburgh, where he teaches strategy and Middle East politics.

Registration & check-in will begin at 11:30 am, and speaker remarks and lunch will begin at 12:00 pm.
