Studium Generale en NGIZ Rotterdam | Today’s Middle East

Gepubliceerd op 21 november 2017

Every year the situation in the Middle East seems to become more complex. With the shifting of alliances and the piling up of conflicts it is hard to keep up with what is going on. This lecture will update you on the current state of affairs in one of the most complicated regions in the world.

The Middle-East is a highly complex and conflictual area in which different alliances and conflicts seem to arise one after the other. To only name a few: the civil war in Syria, rebel groups, the outflow of refugees and the ever-lasting conflict between Palestine and Israel. To many the situation feels hopeless and interference of superpowers as Russia and the United States complicate it even further. As soon as one crisis is under control another-one arises. In order to create some understanding in this chaos we have invited Middle East connoisseur and journalist Carolien Roelants to shine some light on the world’s most problematic area.

For thirty years Carolien Roelants was Middle East editor for the Dutch quality newspaper NRC Handelsblad. Besides numerous articles she wrote several books on the region, for example ‘Saudi Arabia – A Kingdom in Peril’.
