Since the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in the aftermath of World War I, efforts by both regional or international powers to build a sustainable regional order in the Middle East have failed. While some debate on what kind of a regional order would be best for the Middle East and how it could be achieved, others argue that we should adapt to disorder because order in this region is not possible. Yet, the Middle East continues to be home to state failure, conflict, and radicalism which impacts Europe and to a lesser degree the United States through terrorism and migration.
Please join us for a discussion on if and how a lasting regional order can be achieved in the Middle East and how the EU, the United States and Turkey could cooperate to make this possible.
This roundtable discussion is part of a series of events and analyses organized as part of the GMF-TOBB Fellowship on Turkey, Europe and Global issues, launched by GMF in partnership with the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB).
