Current Dynamics between Europe and the Middle East/North Africa

Fri, May 3, 2019 (All day)

Geopolitical relations between Europe and the Middle East and North Africa and within each region have altered the global political, cultural, and social landscape. The new international politics of the American administration under President Donald Trump has led to dramatic developments in policy: a turn toward Israel and Saudi Arabia; overtures to Poland, Hungary, and Turkey; and a closing toward Syria and Iran. What does this changed, and still dynamically changing, landscape mean for relations for Europe and the MENA region? This two-day conference, planned for May 3-4, 2019, is organized around one keynote address and six panels to explore the geopolitical consequences and cultural repercussions of this changing landscape.
